PTGES2 is a membrane-associated prostaglandin E synthase, which catalyzes the conversion of prostaglandin H2 to prostaglandin E2. Additionally, PTGES2 activates the transcription regulated by a gamma-INF-activated transcription element. PTGES2 is widely expressed- in the heart, including apex, inter-ventricular septum, both atria and ventricles, but not in the aorta. PTGES2 is also expressed in fetal heart. PTGES2 is detected in various regions of the brain: cerebellum; occipital, frontal and parietal lobes. It is also expressed in the lymph nodes, skeletal muscle, kidney and trachea, but not in the thymus or lung. PTGES2 is overexpressed in colorectal cancer.
PTGES2 is fused to a 20 amino acid His-tag at N-terminus & purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
