Epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs) are products of arachidonic acid metabolism catalyzed by cytochrome P450 epoxygenases. These small molecules are autocrine and paracrine lipid mediators with important roles in inflammation, cardiovascular function, and angiogenesis. Recent evidence has highlighted that EETs could represent a novel therapeutic strategy for osteoclast-related disorders. The presence of EETs in tissues and their metabolism by soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) to 1,2-diols were first reported 30 years ago. However, appreciation of their importance in cell biology and physiology has greatly accelerated over the past decade with the discovery of metabolically stable inhibitors of sEH, such as TPPU (1-trifluoromethoxyphenyl-3-(1-propionylpiperidin-4-yl)), the commercial availability of EETs, and the development of analytical methods for the quantification of EETs and their diols. The present study aimed to investigate whether sEH inhibitor (TPPU) may modulate the bone resorption in a periodontitis mouse model as well as, to elucidate the involved molecular mechanisms. (AU)
