    The cellular response to prostaglandins is mediated by their interaction with plasma membrane receptors. PG receptors were initially classified on the basis of functional activities of natural and synthetic agonists, and antagonists were classified into the following categories: DP, EP, FP, IP, and TP.   Progress 09/01/00 to 08/31/05 Outputs In the period of this project, 9/01/ to 8/31/, we worked on the broad hypothesis that eicosanoids mediate insect cellular immune reactions to infection. The significance of the hypothesis is the identification of an inter- and intra-cellular signaling system that is responsible for mediating and coordinating insect cellular immunity.

Cytoprotection is independent of the secretory or antisecretory effects of prostaglandins, as it may be observed with certain prostaglandin compounds which are in fact not antisecretory (e.g. PG F 2 ß and 15 (S)-methyl- PGF 2 ß) (10). The cellular mechanisms which underlie prostaglandin-induced cytoprotection have not been identified so far.

Prostaglandins contribute to the regulation of vascular tone, platelet function, and fertility. They also play key roles as inflammatory mediators and modulators of tumor biology.

Although they are technically hormones, they are rarely classified as such. This book examines: the biological role of prostaglandins in drug discovery, Prostaglandins in cellular biology book on immune Author: Gillian M.

Prostaglandins in Cellular Biology: Proceedings of the ALZA Conference on Prostaglandins in Cellular Biology and the Inflammatory Process held in Carmel, California, October[Peter W Ramwell; Bruce B Pharriss] -- This book represents the first of the ALZA CONFERENCE SERIES which Prostaglandins in cellular biology book deal with a wide variety of topics of biomedical interest.

This study looks at the way the products of arachidonic acid metabolism are active both in normal and abnormal immune responses. While some of the fundamental issues such as whether lymphocytes are capable of producing prostaglandins and leukotrienes are still hotly debated, the evidence is overwhelming that many specific immunological problems and disease states are associated with Cited by: Biosynthesis of Prostaglandins.

Prostaglandins and thromboxane A 2 (TXA 2), collectively termed prostanoids, are formed when arachidonic acid (AA), a carbon unsaturated fatty acid, is released from the plasma membrane by phospholipases (PLAs) and metabolized by the sequential actions of prostaglandin G/H synthase, or cyclooxygenase (COX), and respective by: Thus prostaglandins might be involved in the interactions between thymic (T) and bone marrow (B) cells that are required for the full development of cellular and humoral immunity (Hartman, ).

Or they might participate in the phenomenon of antigenic competition where an ongoing immune response interferes nonspecifically with the Cited by: 4. Clinical Importance of Prostaglandins: a. Prostaglandins exert stimulatory effect on contractions of the human uterus. PGE 1, PGE 2, PGE 2 α are given intravenously to induce labor.

PGE 2 and PGF 2 α are also ef­fective orally to induce labor. They are also used as contraceptives to prevent conception. Prostaglandins are acidic lipids which can be enzymatically produced by most mammalian cell types in response to mechanical, chemical or immunological stimuli.

The unsaturated fatty acid arachidonic acid is the precursor for the synthesis of the major classes of prostaglandins and leukotrienes, collectively known as. Biomedical research has discovered a great deal of knowledge about PG receptors in mammals, including their structures, pharmacology, molecular biology and cellular locations.

Studies of PG receptors in insects lag behind the biomedical background, however, recent results hold the promise of accelerated research in this by:   Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) represent one of the most highly utilized classes of pharmaceutical agents in medicine.

All NSAIDs act through inhibiting prostaglandin synthesis, a catalytic activity possessed by two distinct cyclooxygenase (COX) isozymes encoded by separate genes. The discovery of COX-2 launched a new era in NSAID pharmacology, resulting in the Cited by: The prostaglandins (PG) are a group of physiologically active lipid compounds called eicosanoids having diverse hormone-like effects in glandins have been found in almost every tissue in humans and other animals.

They are derived enzymatically from the fatty acid arachidonic acid. Every prostaglandin contains 20 carbon atoms, including a 5-carbon ring. The Biology and Physiology of Inflammation As you learned in the “Immune System” module, there is an intimate relationship between the mechanism of inflammation and the immune system response.

Inflammation is the body’s normal physiological response to Size: KB. Our understanding of inflammation has increased rapidly in recent years, due in large part to the impact of molecular biology and gene identification and cloning. This book brings together ideas from a number of different biochemical disciplines which are frequently not integrated.

The Biology, Pathology and Therapeutic Use of Prostaglandins in the Eye. COX-2 produces prostanoids that function primarily during defined stages of cellular development or pathological.The biggest difference from prostaglandins and hormones is they are not produced in a discrete site but in many places throughout the body.

These are part of the body's way to deal with illness or injury, and are made at sites of infection or tissue damage. They stimulate inflammation, which may cause pain and fever as part of the healing process.This Conference brought together oncologists and specialists in the areas of prostaglandin chemistry, biochemistry, pharmacology, physiology, cellular and molecular biology to overview the actual state of knowledge on the role of eicosanoids in cancer and to focus on the key questions that need to .
