Target

  • Function
    Mediates the formation of prostaglandins from arachidonate. May have a role as a major mediator of inflammation and/or a role for prostanoid signaling in activity-dependent plasticity.
  • Pathway
    Lipid metabolism; prostaglandin biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the prostaglandin G/H synthase family.
    Contains 1 EGF-like domain.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    S-nitrosylation by NOS2 (iNOS) activates enzme activity. S-nitrosylation may take place on different Cys residues in addition to Cys-561.
  • Cellular localization
    Microsome membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum membrane.

Images

  • ab23672 staining COX2/Cyclooygenase 2 in Human synovial fibroblasts by Flow Cytometry. Cells were detached with accutase, suspended in PBS + 1% BSA, fixed with formaldehyde and permeabilized with methanol for 15 nminutes at -20°C. The sample was incubated with the primary antibody (1/600 in PBS + 1% BSA) for 30 minutes at 22°C. A Biotin-conjugated Rabbit anti-goat polyclonal (1/144) was used as the secondary antibody.
    Gating Strategy: Fibroblasts.
    Legend : Red: isotype; Green: unstimulated; Black: TNF (10 ng/ml for 24 hours) stimulated.

  • ab23672 at a 1/500 dilution staining COX2 / Cyclooxygenase 2 in human synovial fibroblasts by Immunocytochemistry/ Immunofluorescence.
    Cells were fixed in formaldehyde and permeabilized using 0.1% Triton X-100. 1% BSA was used to block samples. The secondary used was a Cy5® conjugated rabbit anti-goat at a 1/200 dilution.
