The production of leukotrienes is usually accompanied by the production of histamine and prostaglandins, which also act as inflammatory mediators. [4] One of their roles (specifically, leukotriene D 4) is to trigger contractions in the smooth muscles lining the bronchioles; their overproduction is a major cause of inflammation in asthma and. The eicosanoids consist of the prostaglandins (PG), thromboxanes (TX), leukotrienes (LT) and lipoxins (LX). The PGs and TXs are collectively identified as prostanoids. The nomenclature of the prostanoids includes a subscript number which refers to the number of carbon-carbon double bonds that exist in the molecule.

"Eicosanoid" (eicosa-, Greek for "twenty"; see icosahedron) is the collective term for straight-chain polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) of 20 carbon units in length that have been metabolized or otherwise converted to oxygen-containing products. The PUFA precursors to the eicosanoids include: Arachidonic acid (AA), i.e. 5 Z, 8 Z,11 Z,
