The aim of this study is to draw blood from patients with well-defined atopic asthma that will be subsequently used in invitro experiments to investigate the activation potency of Prostagl...
This study evaluates the addition of transcervical Foley catheter balloon and vaginal prostaglandin E2 in induction of labor at term. Half of participants will be used combine transcervica...
The purpose of the study is to compare between oxytocin to prostaglandin (PGE2), regarding time from induction of labor (IOL) to delivery among primiparas at term with prelabor rupture of ...
This study attempts to examine the effect of oral prostaglandin I2 (Beraprost Na), administered for eight weeks, on the endothelial cell functional disorder among asymptomatic high risk di...
This is the first clinical research trial in which intravenous Prostaglandin E1 (PGE1 is a vasoactive hormone) will be used as supportive treatment along with the angioplasty procedure to ...
This study examines the effect of FOXC1 on the prostaglandin pathway in order to explore FOXC1's role in the prostaglandin-resistant glaucoma phenotype commonly seen in Axenfeld-Rieger syndrome.
Prostaglandin synthase (PGS) can catalyze the production of various types of prostaglandins and regulate the expression levels of related substances. The regulation mechanisms of the PGS gene are clos...
Re-investigation of the L-proline catalyzed double aldol cascade dimerization of succinaldehyde for the synthesis of a key bicyclic enal intermediate, pertinent in the field of stereoselective prostag...
Prostaglandins are synthesized through the metabolism of arachidonic acid via the cyclooxygenase pathway. There are five primary prostaglandins, PGD, PGE, PGF, PGI, and thromboxane B, that all signal ...
To compare the effects of chlormadinone acetate (CMA), dienogest (DNG) and drospirenone (DRSP) on prostaglandin biosynthesis in a human endometrial explants model.
Cell surface receptors that bind prostaglandins with high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Prostaglandin receptor subtypes have been tentatively named according to their relative affinities for the endogenous prostaglandins. They include those which prefer prostaglandin D2 (DP receptors), prostaglandin E2 (EP1, EP2, and EP3 receptors), prostaglandin F2-alpha (FP receptors), and prostacyclin (IP receptors).
Oxidoreductases that catalyze the GLUTATHIONE-dependent oxidoreduction of PROSTAGLANDIN H2 to PROSTAGLANDIN E2.
Cell surface receptors which bind prostaglandins with a high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behavior of cells. Prostaglandin E receptors prefer prostaglandin E2 to other endogenous prostaglandins. They are subdivided into EP1, EP2, and EP3 types based on their effects and their pharmacology.
Aldo-keto reductase that functions as a bi-directional 17 BETA, 20 ALPHA-HYDROXYSTEROID DEHYDROGENASE. It catalyzes the reduction of PROSTAGLANDIN D2 and PROSTAGLANDIN H2, as well as the oxidation of 9alpha,11beta-PGF2 to prostaglandin D2. It can also interconvert estrogens, ANDROGENS; and PROGESTINS between their active forms and inactive metabolites.
A group of physiologically active prostaglandin endoperoxides. They are precursors in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins and thromboxanes. Most frequently encountered member of this group is the prostaglandin G2.
