Prostaglandin receptors: their role in regulating renal function.

Abstract

Renal cyclooxygenase-1 and cyclooxygenase-2 actively metabolize arachidonate to metabolism five primary prostanoids: prostaglandin E2, prostaglandin F2a, prostaglandin I2, thromboxane A2, and prostaglandin D2. These lipid mediators interact with a family of distinct G-protein-coupled prostanoid receptors designated EP, FP, IP, TP, and DP, respectively… (More)
