A novel analog of prostaglandin F2a [AL-8810; (5Z, 13E)(9S,11S,15R)-9,15-dihydroxy-11-fluoro-15-(2-indanyl)-16,17, 18,19,20-pentanor-5,13-prostadienoic acid] has been discovered with uniquely low efficacy (Emax) at the endogenous prostaglandin F2a receptors (FP receptors) of A7r5 rat thoracic aorta smooth muscle cells and Swiss mouse 3T3 fibroblasts, as assayed by stimulation of phospholipase C activity. AL-8810 has weak agonist potency (EC50) of 261 6 44 nM (n 5 3) and Emax 5 19% (relative to… CONTINUE READING
