Both MeHg and EtHg promote the release of arachidonic acid, resulting (on a potentially positive side) in a marked increase in leukotriene production. However, both MeHg and EtHg strongly inhibit the reacylation of arachidonic acid, thus inhibiting the reincorporation of this fatty acid into membrane phospholipids (Shanker et al. 2002; Verity et al. 1994; Zarini et al. 2006)
