Change in prostaglandin E synthases (PGESs) in microsomal PGES-1 knockout mice in a preterm delivery model.


Most preterm deliveries are associated with infection and inflammation. Prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) is one of the most important mediators in the processes of inflammation, and is converted from PGH2 by various kinds of PGE synthases (PGESs). Among PGESs, microsomal PGES-1 (mPGES-1) is known to be the most important subtype in the processes of inflammation. To… (More)
