Inside a WBC we have a transcription factor called NFKB. In the cytosol, NFKB is normally inactivated by IKB. When a viral/bacteria protein stimulates an inflammatory response, the IKB is degraded and we have free NFKB. This translocates in the nucleus where is acts as a transcription factor, to increase cytokines, adhesion molecules, and COX-2. -Cytokines: fight pathogens but can also cause tissue damage. -Adhesion molecules: ICAM/VCAM: binds to the endothelial cells, which can then go into the tissue and fight the pathogen. -COX-2: AA is the subtrate for COX-2, which produces PGE. This causes dilation of the vessels, warmth, tenderness. ...
Prostaglandin E synthase (or PGE synthase) is an enzyme involved in eicosanoid and glutathione metabolism, a member of MAPEG family. It generates prostaglandin E (PGE) from prostaglandin H2. The synthase generating PGE2 is a membrane-associated protein. Humans express three prostaglandin-E synthase isozymes, each encoded by a separate gene: Jegerschold, C.; Pawelzik, S. -C.; Purhonen, P.; Bhakat, P.; Gheorghe, K.

Animal studies lasting several weeks at high doses have shown that prostaglandins of the E and F series can induce proliferation of bone. Such effects have also been noted in newborn infants who have received prostaglandin E1 during prolonged treatment. There is no evidence that short term administration of PROSTIN E2 Vaginal Suppository can cause similar bone effects.. As in spontaneous abortion, where the process is sometimes incomplete, abortion induced by PROSTIN E2 may sometimes be incomplete. In such cases, other measures should be taken to assure complete abortion.. In patients with a history of asthma, hypo-or hypertension, cardiovascular disease, renal disease, hepatic disease, anemia, jaundice, diabetes or history of epilepsy, dinoprostone should be used with caution.. Dinoprostone administered by the vaginal route should be used with caution in the presence of cervicitis, infected endocervical lesions, or acute vaginitis.. As with any oxytocic agent, dinoprostone should be used with ...
The commensal flora can promote both immunity to pathogens and mucosal inflammation. How commensal-driven inflammation is regulated in the context of infection remains poorly understood. Here, we show that during acute mucosal infection of mice with Toxoplasma gondii, inflammatory monocytes acquire a tissue-specific regulatory phenotype associated with production of the lipid mediator prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). Notably, in response to commensals, inflammatory monocytes can directly inhibit neutrophil activation in a PGE2-dependent manner. Further, in the absence of inflammatory monocytes, mice develop severe neutrophil-mediated pathology in response to pathogen challenge that can be controlled by PGE2 analog treatment. Complementing these findings, inhibition of PGE2 led to enhanced neutrophil activation and host mortality after infection. These data demonstrate a previously unappreciated dual action of inflammatory monocytes in controlling pathogen expansion while limiting commensal-mediated ...

In our studies, we showed that inhibition of LPS-stimulated ROS production in BMDM also selectively inhibited the production of PGD2, but not its isomer PGE2. LPS-induced PGD2 production in BMDM was mediated via H-PGDS isomerase, but not L-PGDS. LPS-induced H-PGDS-mediated PGD2 production was sensitive to and dependent on the NOX-generated ROS in BMDM. In contrast, the LPS-induced PGE2 production in BMDM was ROS independent.. To our knowledge, this is the first report of the role of ROS in differential regulation of LPS-induced PGD2 and PGE2 production. The novel finding of our study is that the modulation of intracellular ROS levels in macrophages could selectively regulate LPS-induced production of PGD2, but not PGE2. Therefore, it is impossible that the ROS or any NOX/ROS inhibitors exert their selective effects on PGD2 production via the modification of COX-2 enzyme in BMDM. If there is any modifications of the COX-2 protein expression or its enzyme activity by the above inhibitors or H2O2, ...

He asked me all the normal questions but, again, added a new shocking on in just to make sure I was paying attention. He asked if I would like to plan to have my membranes stripped to help speed up the end of my pregnancy. Stripping membranes is when a physician uses a finger to basically separate the water bag from the cervix which releases prostaglandins to help induce labor. This method is definitely not a sure way to start labor but if everything is progressing well, it shouldnt harm a pregnancy either. But either way, I freaked out.

Microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) or Prostaglandin E synthase is an enzyme that in humans is encoded by the PTGES gene. The protein encoded by this gene is a glutathione-dependent prostaglandin E synthase. The expression of this gene has been shown to be induced by proinflammatory cytokine interleukin 1 beta (IL1B). Its expression can also be induced by tumor suppressor protein TP53, and may be involved in TP53-induced apoptosis. Knockout studies in mice suggest that this gene may contribute to the pathogenesis of collagen-induced arthritis and mediate acute pain during inflammatory responses.

Prostaglandin E synthase (PGES) including isoenzymes of membrane-associated PGES (mPGES)-1, mPGES-2, and cytosolic PGES (cPGES) is the recently identified terminal enzyme of the arachidonic acid cascade. PGES converts prostaglandin (PG)H2 to PGE2 downstream of cyclooxygenase (COX). We investigated the expression of PGES isoenzyme in articular chondrocytes from patients with osteoarthritis (OA). Chondrocytes were treated with various cytokines and the expression of PGES isoenzyme mRNA was analyzed by the reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and Northern blotting, whereas Western blotting was performed for protein expression. The subcellular localization of mPGES-1 was determined by immunofluorescent microscopy. Conversion of arachidonic acid or PGH2 to PGE2 was measured by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. Finally, the expression of mPGES-1 protein in OA articular cartilage was assessed by immunohistochemistry. Expression of mPGES-1 mRNA in chondrocytes was significantly induced by

Many human cancers express elevated levels of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), an enzyme responsible for the biosynthesis of prostaglandins. Available clinical data establish the protective effect of COX-2 inhibition on human cancer progression. According to the study by Medical College of Georgia, showed that the COX-2 product prostaglandin E(2) (PGE(2)) acts on cognate receptor EP4 to promote the migration of A549 lung cancer cells. Treatment with PGE(2) enhances tyrosine kinase c-Src activation, and blockade of c-Src activity represses the PGE(2)-mediated lung cancer cell migration. PGE(2) affects target cells by activating four receptors named EP1 to EP4. Use of EP subtype-selective ligand agonists suggested that EP4 mediates prostaglandin-induced A549 lung cancer cellmigration, and this conclusion was confirmed using a short hairpin RNA approach to specifically knock down EP4 expression(7 ...
Inflammation comprises the reaction of the body to injury, in which a series of changes of the terminal vascular bed, blood, and connective tissue tends to eliminate the injurious agent and to repair the damaged tissue. It is a complex process, which involves the release of diverse regulatory mediators. The current anti-inflammatory agents are challenged by multiple side effects and thus, new effective therapies are highly needed. The aim of this review is to summarize the described microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) inhibitors or transcriptional suppressors from medicinal plants, which could be an ideal approach in the management of inflammatory disorders, but need further clinical trials in order to be ultimately validated ...

Several lines of evidence show that production of PGE2 is enhanced during inflammation, and this lipid mediator can dramatically modulate the immune response (43). Given these observations and because myeloid-derived cells produce large amounts of proinflammatory lipid mediators, we investigated COX expression, PGE2 synthesis, and cytokine production by BM-DC. We reported that production of AA-derived metabolites did not require the addition of exogenous substrate, because BM-DC are able to produce PGE2 and LTB4 under the two experimental conditions, and these APC express cytosolic PLA2, which catalyzes the release of endogenous AA from the cell membrane. The expression of cPLA2 is up-regulated by LPS in a dose-dependent fashion, and an important liberation of AA was observed in LPS-treated BM-DC compared with control cells. These data are consistent with previous studies, which reported induction of cPLA2 by LPS in human leukocytes (44, 45). Analysis of COX expression shows that resting BM-DC ...

Inhibition of neuronal cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) and hence prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) synthesis by non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs has been suggested to protect neuronal cells in a variety of pathophysiological situations including Alzheimers disease and ischemic stroke. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) has also been shown to protect cerebral tissue in a variety of experimental conditions, which has been attributed to its antioxidant capacity. In the present study, we show that ascorbic acid dose-dependently inhibited interleukin-1beta (IL-1beta)-mediated PGE2 synthesis in the human neuronal cell line, SK-N-SH. Furthermore, in combination with aspirin, ascorbic acid augmented the inhibitory effect of aspirin on PGE2 synthesis. However, ascorbic acid had no synergistic effect along with other COX inhibitors (SC-58125 and indomethacin). The inhibition of IL-1beta-mediated PGE2 synthesis by ascorbic acid was not due to the inhibition of the expression of COX-2 or microsomal prostaglandin E synthase ...
Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs selective for inhibition of cyclooxygenase 2 (COX-2) were developed to conserve the analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy of older nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs that inhibited cyclooxygenase 1 and COX-2, while reducing the likelihood of gastrointestinal adverse effects. Although this objective was broadly attained, COX-2 inhibitors, which turned out to include some older nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs like diclofenac, also caused thrombotic events, hypertension, and cardiac failure attributable to suppression of COX-2-derived PGI2. The microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) enzyme is downstream of COX-2 and accounts for most of the prostaglandin E2 that is formed in humans. Some, but not all studies in mice lacking mPGES-1 suggest analgesic and anti-inflammatory efficacy similar to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Most, but not all studies suggest that unlike COX-2 disruption or inhibition, global mPGES-1 deletion does not ...
Microsomal prostaglandin E synthase-1 (mPGES-1) constitutes a drug target for inflammation, fever and pain. mPGES-1 catalyzes the biosynthesis of prostaglandin (PG) E2 from cyclooxygenase (Cox) -derived PGH2, which in turn is derived from arachidonic acid. mPGES-1 is mainly associated with inflammation and it is known to be up regulated by various pro-inflammatory cytokines like IL-1 beta and TNF-alpha. Mice devoid of mPGES-1 activity display resistance to development of experimental arthritis, fever, pain, symptoms following stroke, atherosclerosis and breathing anomalies induced by hypoxia. Conversely, the enzyme seems to have a protective role in wound healing and remodeling following myocardial infarction. Inhibitors of mPGES-1 have been developed by several groups. However, their characterization in animal models of inflammation, or other models previously used to study mPGES-1 knock-out mice, remains limited. One reason is the fact that a majority of the potent inhibitors of human mPGES-1 ...
Breast cancer is a major cause of death worldwide. Human cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1B1 is a key enzyme in the metabolism of 17β-estradiol, and CYP1B1-metabolized 4-hydroxyestradiol is a marker for breast cancer. Furthermore, overexpression of cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), which produces prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), has been detected in invasive breast carcinomas. However, the interaction between PGE2 and CYP1B1 expression in human breast cancer is unclear. Here, we investigated the effect of PGE2 on CYP1B1 expression and its mechanism in breast cancer cells. PGE2 significantly increased CYP1B1 protein and messenger RNA expression and dose dependently enhanced CYP1B1 promoter activity in human breast cancer MCF-7 cells. Transient transfection with human CYP1B1 (hCYP1B1) deletion promoter constructs and cotreatment with inhibitors revealed that the estrogen response element contributed to the effects of PGE2. CYP1B1 expression was not affected by PGE2 in estrogen receptor (ER) α-negative MDA-MB-231 breast ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Prostaglandins and host defense in cancer. AU - Goodwin, J. S.. PY - 1981/1/1. Y1 - 1981/1/1. N2 - The whole relationship between prostaglandins and cancer has not received the attention it should from experimental oncologists. This may be because the whole area of prostaglandins is immensely confusing, with different cyclo-oxygenase metabolites having completely opposite results. Thus when one adds a cyclo-oxygenase inhibitor to a system, any result is possible. It is not even settled whether PGE has a physiologic role or is merely a metabolite of an unstable intermediate compound that is the real PG, or whether the effects of cyclo-oxygenase inhibitors are because of inhibition of production of the classic prostaglandins (PGE and PGF) or by inhibition of production of thromboxanes, prostacyclin, etc. This lack of precise definition of the system tends to discourage precision in experimentation, which in turn tends to keep careful investigators out of the area. The ...
Systemic inflammation, which results from the massive release of proinflammatory molecules into the circulatory system, is a major risk factor for severe illness, but the precise mechanisms underlying its control are not fully understood. We observed that prostaglandin E2 (PGE2), through its receptor EP4, is down-regulated in human systemic inflammatory disease. Mice with reduced PGE2 synthesis develop systemic inflammation, associated with translocation of gut bacteria, which can be prevented by treatment with EP4 agonists. Mechanistically, we demonstrate that PGE2-EP4 signaling acts directly on type 3 innate lymphoid cells (ILCs), promoting their homeostasis and driving them to produce interleukin-22 (IL-22). Disruption of the ILC-IL-22 axis impairs PGE2-mediated inhibition of systemic inflammation. Hence, the ILC-IL-22 axis is essential in protecting against gut barrier dysfunction, enabling PGE2-EP4 signaling to impede systemic inflammation. ...
Cancerous cells produce large quantities of prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) which enables the tumor to lower the immune systems normal attack response. Aspirin, which is a type of drug known as a COX inhibitor, blocks the production of PGE2.. "Weve added to the growing evidence that some cancers produce PGE2 as a way of escaping the immune system," said team leader Professor Caetano Reis e Sousa. "If you can take away cancer cells ability to make PGE2, you effectively lift this protective barrier and unleash the full power of the immune system.". The researchers from Francis Crick Institute in London were able to slow the growth of bowel and melanoma cancers in mice.. In their current form, immunotherapy drugs are very expensive. The possibility that a cheap, commonly used drug could boost their effectiveness gives hope that less drugs will be needed and the soaring costs of cancer treatment will be more manageable.. "Once you stop the cancer cells from producing [PGE2], the immune system switches ...
