  • Application notes
    Is unsuitable for Flow Cyt.
  • 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.
