Prostaglandins (PGs) play a key role in the development of the immune response. These molecules are produced by a variety of cells including leukocytes, macrophages being the most important source of PGs for the innate immune system. PGs can elicit a variety of effects depending on the inflammatory milieu but also on the presence of specific PG receptors in many cell types. The biosynthetic pathways of prostaglandins, their production by cells of the immune system and their functions as immune… CONTINUE READING
