Examples of "ptgdr"
Prostaglandin D (or PGD) is a prostaglandin that binds to the receptor
(DP), as well as CRTH2 (DP). It is a major prostaglandin produced by mast cells – recruits Th2 cells, eosinophils, and basophils. In mammalian organs, large amounts of PGD are found only in the brain and in mast cells. It is critical to development of allergic diseases such as asthma.
The Prostaglandin D receptor 1 (DP), a G protein-coupled receptor encoded by the "PTGDR1" gene (also termed "
"), is primarily a receptor for prostaglandin D (PGD). The receptor is a member of the Prostaglandin receptors belonging to the Subfamily A14 of rhodopsin-like receptors. Activation of DP1 by PGD2 or other cognate receptor ligands is associated with a variety of physiological and pathological responses in animal models.
