InnateDB Annotation
Summary
Ptges2 is responsible for nearly half of the increment in NO production by alveolar macrophages in response to LPS stimulation. The enhancing effect of Ptges2 on NO production is mediated through the ligation of Ptger2 and acting via PKA to induce cAMP production. In addition Ptges2 induces expression of cytokines Il10 and Il6, while inhibiting Tnfa. (Demonstrated in rat models)

Entrez Gene
Summary The protein encoded by this gene is a Golgi membrane-associated prostaglandin E synthase candidate, which is capable of catalyzing the conversion of prostaglandin H2 to prostaglandin E2 in vitro. However, a study using mice deficient of this gene suggests that this enzyme does not contribute to prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis in vivo. This protein is synthesized as a Golgi membrane-bound protein, but its N-terminal hydrophobic region is cleaved off during protein maturation to produce the predominant soluble truncated form that still retains the enzyme activity. This soluble protein also has been shown to activate the transcription regulated by a gamma-interferon-activated transcription element (GATE), possibly via an interaction with CAAAT/enhancer-binding protein-beta.
