Prostaglandins in non-insectan invertebrates: recent insights and unsolved problems
Journal of Experimental Biology
Prostaglandins, together with thromboxanes (collectively termed prostanoids), are fatty acid derivatives of significant importance in many physiological processes. These compounds are formed following the action of cyclooxygenases (COX) and associated enzymes on C20 polyunsaturated fatty acid precursors released from phospholipids in membranes. Nearly all mammalian cell types have the biosynthetic machinery to produce at least one type of prostanoid. The same C20 fatty acid substrates can alsodoi:10.1242/jeb.01275 pmid:15601872 fatcat:5t3nttn25zh7znfbnmuyufkmtu
