WB 1/500 - 1/3000. Predicted molecular weight: 42 kDa.


  • Function

    Isomerase that catalyzes the conversion of unstable intermediate of prostaglandin E2 H2 (PGH2) into the more stable prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) form. May also have transactivation activity toward IFN-gamma (IFNG), possibly via an interaction with CEBPB; however, the relevance of transcription activation activity remains unclear.
  • Tissue specificity

    Widely expressed. Expressed in the heart, including apex, inter-ventricular septum, both atria and ventricles, but not in the aorta. Also expressed in fetal heart. Detected in various regions of the brain: cerebellum; occipital, frontal and parietal lobes. Also expressed in the lymph nodes, skeletal muscle, kidney and trachea, but not in the thymus or lung. Overexpressed in colorectal cancer.
  • Pathway

    Lipid metabolism; prostaglandin biosynthesis.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the GST superfamily.
    Contains 1 glutaredoxin domain.
    Contains 1 GST C-terminal domain.
  • Cellular localization

    Golgi apparatus membrane and Cytoplasm > perinuclear region. Synthetized as a Golgi membrane-bound protein, which is further cleaved into the predominant soluble truncated form. The truncated form is cytoplasmic and is enriched in the perinuclear region.
