Gene: PTGS2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PTGS2
Name: prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2
Description: Exhibits enzyme binding activity and prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase activity. Involved in cellular response to hypoxia and cyclooxygenase pathway. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum and neuron projection. Implicated in several diseases, including arthritis (multiple); avian influenza; cardiovascular system disease (multiple); liver disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including carcinoma (multiple); functioning pituitary adenoma (multiple); in situ carcinoma (multiple); neurodegenerative disease (multiple); and urinary system cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
