Basics

Eicosanoids are metabolic products of three degradation pathways of arachidonic acid. The name comes from Greek word “eikosi”, which means “twenty” for the 20-carbon fatty acid of arachidonate. They constitute a class of oxygenated hydrophobic compounds that mostly act as paracrine mediators.
