Prostaglandin E2 | Prostaglandin E (EP) receptor agonist

Prostaglandin E2 (363-24-6; PGE2) is an endogenous prostaglandin derived from the action of cyclooxygenase on arachidonic acid. PGE2 has diverse biological actions in the areas of inflammation, cancer, immune modulation, fertility, smooth muscle relaxation and hematopoietic stem cell homeostasis. Prostaglandin E2 acts through four distinct receptors: EP1, EP2, EP3, EP4.
