General description

PTGS2 (prostaglandin-endoperoxidase synthase 2) is mapped to human chromosome 1q25.2-q25.3. The protein exists as 72 and 74kDa glycoforms.


Prostaglandin G/H synthase 2 precursor recombinant protein epitope signature tag (PrEST)

Biochem/physiol Actions

COX2 (Cyclooxygenase-2) gene encodes an enzyme involved in prostanoid synthesis. It converts arachidonate to prostaglandin H2 (PGH2). It is involved in the production of inflammatory prostaglandins. It is an inducible isozyme of prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase that is regulated by inflammation and mitogenesis, growth factors and cytokines. It is inhibited by nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin and ibuprofen. This inhibition reduces inflammation, pain, and fever. Long-term usage of these drugs reduces the risk of fatal thrombotic events, development of colon cancer and Alzheimer′s disease.

Features and Benefits

Prestige Antibodies® are highly characterized and extensively validated antibodies with the added benefit of all available characterization data for each target being accessible via the Human Protein Atlas portal linked just below the product name at the top of this page. The uniqueness and low cross-reactivity of the Prestige Antibodies® to other proteins are due to a thorough selection of antigen regions, affinity purification, and stringent selection. Prestige antigen controls are available for every corresponding Prestige Antibody and can be found in the linkage section.

Every Prestige Antibody is tested in the following ways:
  • IHC tissue array of 44 normal human tissues and 20 of the most common cancer type tissues.
  • Protein array of 364 human recombinant protein fragments.


Corresponding Antigen APREST83041.

Physical form

Solution in phosphate-buffered saline, pH 7.2, containing 40% glycerol and 0.02% sodium azide

The prostaglandin endoperoxide H synthases-1 and 2 (PGHS-1 and PGHS-2; also cyclooxygenases-1 and 2, COX-1 and COX-2) catalyze the committed step in prostaglandin synthesis. PGHS-1 and 2 are of particular interest because they are the major targets of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory...

Cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2) catalyzes the rate-limiting step in the prostanoid biosynthesis pathway, converting arachidonic acid into prostaglandin H(2). COX-2 exists as 72 and 74kDa glycoforms, the latter resulting from an additional oligosaccharide chain at residue Asn(580). In this study, Asn(580) was...

Cyclo-oxygenase (Cox), a rate-limiting enzyme in the synthesis of prostanoids, is encoded by two genes, Cox-1 and Cox-2, which are differentially expressed and regulated. Human Cox-1 and -2 polypeptides share 61% primary sequence identity. While the expression of Cox-1 is...
