Prostaglandin endoperoxide synthase: why two isoforms? 1996

  • Prostaglandin endoperoxide synthase-1 [prostaglandin G/H synthase-1 (PGHS-1)] and PGHS-2 are key enzymes in the conversion of arachidonic acid to prostaglandins and other eicosanoids. We refer to these isoforms as cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) and COX-2 in this review. This brief review focuses on recent developments in the study of these enzymes. Alterations in the expression levels of COX-2 result in distinct phenotypic changes in intestinal epithelial cells. Overexpression of COX-2 in intestinal
