Prostaglandins are considered to play important roles in gastric mucosal protection. The rate-limiting enzyme involved in the biosynthesis of prostaglandins is cyclooxygenase (COX), also known as prostaglandin H synthase. Two forms of COX are known: a constitutively expressed form (COX-1) and a newly-characterized, inducible form (COX-2). In the present… CONTINUE READING
