Symbol/Gene Name:  PTGES

Alias:  Prostaglandin E synthase,Glutathione peroxidase PTGES,Glutathione transferase PTGES,Microsomal glutathione S-transferase 1-like 1,MGST1-L1,Microsomal prostaglandin E synthase 1,MPGES-1,p53-induced gene 12 protein

Uniprot: O14684

Background: Terminal enzyme of the cyclooxygenase (COX)-2-mediated prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) biosynthetic pathway. Catalyzes the glutathione-dependent oxidoreduction of prostaglandin endoperoxide H2 (PGH2) to prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) in response to inflammatory stimuli (PubMed:18682561, PubMed:10377395, PubMed:12672824, PubMed:12460774, PubMed:10869354, PubMed:12244105). Plays a key role in inflammation response, fever and pain (By similarity). Catalyzes also the oxidoreduction of endocannabinoids into prostaglandin glycerol esters and PGG2 into 15-hydroperoxy-PGE2 (PubMed:12244105, PubMed:12672824). In addition, displays low glutathione transferase and glutathione-dependent peroxidase activities, toward 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene and 5-hydroperoxyicosatetraenoic acid (5-HPETE), respectively (PubMed:12672824).

Construct: PTGES(M1-L152 end)-3C-eGFP-10His
