In homogenates of rat cerebral neocortex prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) was found to be quantitatively the main PG biosynthesized by a cytosolic PGD synthetase from endogenously released arachidonic acid. Amounts of 628 ng/g wet weight were found after 30-min incubation periods

Dazoxiben, a thromboxane synthase inhibitor, inhibits arachidonic acid induced aggregation in platelet-rich plasma from some donors only ("responders"). We have studied the effect of dazoxiben in vitro on platelet aggregation and prostaglandin (PG) metabolism and the influence of the incubation

Aldo-keto reductase 1C3 (AKR1C3) has been shown to mediate the metabolism of sex hormones and prostaglandin D(2) (PGD(2)), a lipid mediator that promotes skin inflammation in atopic dermatitis (AD). As both have a role in skin function and pathology, we

The effects of PGD2 are extremely context dependent. It can have pro- or anti-inflammatory effects in clinically important pathological conditions. A greater mechanistic insight into the determinants of PGD2 activity during inflammation is thus required. In this study, we investigated

We investigated the role of prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) signaling in acute lung injury (ALI), focusing on its producer-effector interaction in vivo. Administration of endotoxin increased edema and neutrophil infiltration in the WT mouse lung. Gene disruption of hematopoietic PGD synthase
