Molecular characterization and ocular hypotensive properties of the prostanoid EP2 receptor.

The cloning of the genes that encode for prostaglandin (PG) receptors has resolved much of the complexity and controversy in this area by confirming the classification proposed by Coleman, et al. Two issues that remained unresolved were (1) the inability of the EP2 agonist butaprost to interact with the cloned putative EP2 receptor and (2) molecular… (More)
