Abstract

Purpose: Soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) and microsomal epoxide hydrolase (mEH) both catalyze the metabolism of epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs), lipid signaling molecules that are protective against ischemic brain injury owing to their participation in the regulation of vascular tone and cerebral blood flow. In addition, mEH metabolizes polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, one of the causative factors of atherosclerotic lesion development. In this study, we aimed to investigate the association of enzyme activity-modifying missense single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) of the sEH gene (EPHX2) and mEH gene (EPHX1) and ischemic stroke risk in a Turkish population.
