Prostanoids are a group of lipid mediators that include the prostaglandins (PG) and thromboxanes (TX). Upon cell stimulation, prostanoids are synthesized from arachidonic acid via the cyclooxygenase (COX) pathway and released outside the cells to exert various physiological and pathological actions in a variety of tissues and cells. The activities of prostanoids are mediated by specific G protein-coupled receptors, which have been classified on the basis of pharmacological experiments into… CONTINUE READING
