Glutathione-Independent prostaglandin D synthase, identical to beta-trace, (a major CSF protein), is localized in the CNS. This enzyme, lipocalin-type prostaglandin D synthase, is a member of the lipocalin family of secretory proteins that transport small lipophilic substances. This enzyme's activity in adult rat retina was enriched sixfold in retinal pigment epithelium (RPE) and even more in interphotoreceptor matrix (IPM), all higher than brain. Western blots with anti-lipocalin-type… CONTINUE READING
