Gene: Ptgs2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ptgs2
Name: prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2
Description: Exhibits heme binding activity; prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and regulation of inflammatory response. Localizes to the cytoplasm and neuron projection. Predicted to colocalize with the caveola. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Barrett's esophagus; arthritis (multiple); cardiovascular system disease (multiple); liver disease (multiple); and lung disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including lung; nervous system; and urinary system. Orthologous to human PTGS2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
