Eicosanoids

In the group of eicosanoids fall leukotrienes, prostaglandins, and thromboxanes synthesised from arachidonic acid metabolites; “Eicosanoids function to modulate the release of somatostatin, the principal hormone that stimulates cell proliferation and growth. Eicosanoids also have important roles in immunity and inflammation.” (Hadley et al. 2016)
