Summaries for PTGDS Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PTGDS Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a glutathione-independent prostaglandin D synthase that catalyzes the conversion of prostaglandin H2 (PGH2) to postaglandin D2 (PGD2). PGD2 functions as a neuromodulator as well as a trophic factor in the central nervous system. PGD2 is also involved in smooth muscle contraction/relaxation and is a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation. This gene is preferentially expressed in brain. Studies with transgenic mice overexpressing this gene suggest that this gene may be also involved in the regulation of non-rapid eye movement sleep. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for PTGDS Gene

PTGDS (Prostaglandin D2 Synthase 21kDa (Brain)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with PTGDS include normal pressure hydrocephalus and cerebrospinal fluid leak. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and retinoid binding. An important paralog of this gene is LCN15.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PTGDS Gene

  • Catalyzes the conversion of PGH2 to PGD2, a prostaglandin involved in smooth muscle contraction/relaxation and a potent inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Involved in a variety of CNS functions, such as sedation, NREM sleep and PGE2-induced allodynia, and may have an anti-apoptotic role in oligodendrocytes. Binds small non-substrate lipophilic molecules, including biliverdin, bilirubin, retinal, retinoic acid and thyroid hormone, and may act as a scavenger for harmful hydrophopic molecules and as a secretory retinoid and thyroid hormone transporter. Possibly involved in development and maintenance of the blood-brain, blood-retina, blood-aqueous humor and blood-testis barrier. It is likely to play important roles in both maturation and maintenance of the central nervous system and male reproductive system.

    • Monomer.
    Miscellaneous:
    • It has been proposed that the urinary and serum levels may provide a sensitive indicator of renal damage in diabetes mellitus and hypertension. Elevated levels in the coronary circulation may also be associated with angina. Changes in charge and molecular weight microheterogeneity, due to modification of the N-linked oligosaccharides, may be associated with neurodegenerative disease and multiple sclerosis. Detected in meningioma but not in other brain tumors and may be considered a specific cell marker for meningioma. Expression levels in amniotic fluid are altered in abnormal pregnancies. Levels are lower in pregnancies with trisomic fetuses and fetuses with renal abnormalities
