Abstract
Background: How AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) influences IL-4-induced human macrophage polarization is not completely understood.

Results: AMPK prevents arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase induction by IL-4 and abolishes the formation of 15-lipoxygenase arachidonic acid metabolites.

Conclusion: AMPK activation promotes an anti-inflammatory phenotype in IL-4-stimulated macrophages by reducing arachidonate 15-lipoxygenase expression.

Significance: This study supports an anti-inflammatory effect of AMPK activation.
