1 PGE2 exerts its effect on the LPS-induced release of TNF-alpha, ET-1, IL-1alpha, IL-6 and IL-10 via the EP2 and EP4 receptor in rat liver macrophages. Dinoprostone prostaglandin E receptor 2 Rattus norvegicus
2 This effect of PGE2 is mimicked by specific agonists for the PGE2 receptors EP2 and EP4; whereas, agonists for the PGE2 receptors EP1 and EP3 are inactive. Dinoprostone prostaglandin E receptor 2 Rattus norvegicus
3 These data suggest that PGE2 exerts its anti-fibrogenic effect through the EP2 and EP4 receptor by inhibiting the release of the fibrogenic mediators TNF-alpha, ET-1 and IL-1alpha, and by enhancing the release of the anti-fibrogenic mediators IL-6 and IL-10 in liver macrophages. Dinoprostone prostaglandin E receptor 2 Rattus norvegicus
