Its mechanism of action includes prostanoid
formation and alteration in chemokine function (Molad2002).
2] is converted to each prostanoid
by specific PG terminal synthases.
We next studied the expression level of enzymes involved in prostanoid
production in parasite-harboring hearts (Fig.
Serum lipoprotein, insulin, and urinary prostanoid
metabolites in normal and hypertensive pregnant women.
The potential sources of free radical generation in exercising muscle are mainly from mitochondria, xanthine oxidase, prostanoid
metabolism, catecholamines, NAD (P) H oxidase and secondary sources such are phagocytosis or calcium accumulation (Jackson, 2000).
COX-1 & COX-2 catalyze the conversion of arachidonic acid into prostanoid
, leading to the formation of thromboxane (TXA2) and prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) mediators, respectively [28, 29, 30, and 31].
Misoprostol stimulates myometrial contractions in a pregnant uterus by selectively binding to EP2/EP3 prostanoid
Furthermore, the data also suggests the functional expression of various prostanoid
receptors in these vessels and more so will assist in developing future pharmacological molecules, targeting the prost anoidreceptors, to treat pulmonary hypertension, a disease still remain untreatable with the current therapeutic tools.

synthesis using human colonic mucosa," Indian Journal of Experimental Biology, vol.
conceptionis have muscarinic receptors type 1 and 3 with one muscarinic receptor having a high sensitivity that could be located in the endothelium coupled to COX that produce a prostanoid
vasoconstrictor, and another muscarinic receptor having a low sensitivity located in the vascular smooth muscle.
Epoprostenol (Flolan[R]), a synthetic prostacyclin, was the first prostanoid
available for therapeutic use in PH.
Chorionic gonadotrophin regulates CXCR4 expression in human endometrium via E-series prostanoid
