Prostaglandins (PGs), thromboxanes (TXs) and leukotrienes (LTs) collectively called eicosanoids, are cyclooxygenase (COX) and lipoxygenase (LOX) products. Prostanoids, PGs and TXs, are known effectors of a wide range of actions in most cells and tissues. They have been described to be involved in muscle contraction and relaxation, neurotransmitter release… (More)
