Prostaglandin D synthase (beta-trace) in human arachnoid and meningioma cells: roles as a cell marker or in cerebrospinal fluid absorption, tumorigenesis, and calcification process.

Abstract

Glutathione-independent prostaglandin D synthase (PGDS) is an enzyme responsible for biosynthesis of prostaglandin D2 in the CNS and is identical to a major cerebrospinal fluid protein, beta-trace. Although PGDS has been identified recently in rat leptomeninges, little information is available about human meninges or meningiomas. Here, we report PGDS to be… (More)
