Recombinant Human Prostaglandin E Synthase

Cat. No. : PTGES-583H
Product Overview : Recombinant Human PTGES isolated from a baculovirus overexpression system inSf21 cells. MW = 21 kDa.
Description : Prostaglandin E synthases (PGESs) are enzymes that convert cyclooxygenase (COX)-derived PGH2 to PGE2. There are three different PGES enzymes with distinct enzymatic properties, modes of expression, cellular and subcellular localizations, and intracellular functions, two of which are membrane-bound enzymes and have been designated as mPGES-1 and mPGES-2. mPGES-1 is a perinuclear protein belonging to the membrane-associated proteins involved in eicosanoid and glutathione metabolism (MAPEG) superfamily.2 It requires glutathione as an essential cofactor for activity. mPGES-1 is up-regulated in response to various proinflammatory stimuli with a concomitant increased expression of COX-2 and is down-regulated by glucocorticoids.3 mPGES-1 gene knockout studies in mice have indicated a role for mPGES-1-generated PGE2 in female reproduction, inflammation, pain, fever, anorexia, atherosclerosis, stroke, and tumorigenesis. Therefore, mPGES-1 is a potential drug target for various diseases.
