Prostaglandin E Synthase 2, human

Known as: Microsomal Prostaglandin E Synthase 2, EC 5.3.99.3, Membrane-Associated Prostaglandin E Synthase 2 
Prostaglandin E synthase 2 (377 aa, ~42 kDa) is encoded by the human PTGES2 gene. This protein plays a role in both the synthesis of prostaglandin E2… Expand
