Microsomal prostaglandin E synthase (mPGES)-1 is a newly identified inducible enzyme of the arachidonic acid cascade with a key function in prostaglandin (PG)E2 synthesis. We investigated the kinetics of inducible cyclo-oxygenase (COX)-2 and mPGES-1 expression with respect to the production of 6-keto-PGF1alpha and PGE2 in rat chondrocytes stimulated with 10 ng/ml IL-1beta, and compared their modulation by peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor (PPAR)gamma agonists.
