Molecular cloning and characterization of chicken prostaglandin E receptor subtypes 2 and 4 (EP2 and EP4).

Prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) is an important chemical mediator responsible for regulation of many vital physiological processes. Four receptor subtypes have been identified to mediate its biological actions. Among these subtypes, prostaglandin E receptor subtypes 2 and 4 (EP(2) and EP(4)), both coupled to cAMP-protein kinase A (cAMP-PKA) signaling pathway… CONTINUE READING
