Reconstitution We recommend that this vial be briefly centrifuged prior to opening to bring the contents to the bottom. Please reconstitute protein in deionized sterile water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL.We recommend to add 5-50% of glycerol (final concentration) and aliquot for long-term storage at -20℃/-80℃. Our default final concentration of glycerol is 50%. Customers could use it as reference.

Storage Condition Store at -20°C upon receipt, aliquoting is necessary for mutiple use. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.
Shelf Life The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself.
Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Lead Time Delivery time may differ from different purchasing way or location, please kindly consult your local distributors for specific delivery time.
Note: All of our proteins are default shipped with normal blue ice packs, if you request to ship with dry ice, please communicate with us in advance and extra fees will be charged.
Notes Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.

Target Data

Function Receptor for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). The activity of this receptor is mediated by G(s) proteins that stimulate adenylate cyclase. Has a relaxing effect on smooth muscle. May play an important role in regulating renal hemodynamics, intestinal epithelial transport, adrenal aldosterone secretion, and uterine function.

  1. We found that rats injected with the 30mug dose of PGE2 exhibited the most pronounced thermal nociceptive hypersensitivity though secondary analysis showed that rats injected with PGE2 doses of 0.03-30mug had lower withdrawal latencies as compared to rats injected with vehicle. PMID: 29031391
  2. Data suggest that EP4 recycling contributes to agonist-induced cell surface abundance and consequently enhanced receptor sensitivity. Facilitating EP4 externalization and recycling is a novel mechanism underlying PGE2-induced nociceptor sensitization. PMID: 27060485

  14. EP4 receptors are involved in duodenal HCO(3)(-) response induced by PGE(2) or acidification. Stimulation through EP4 receptors is mediated by cAMP. PMID: 15194560

  18. signals through EP4 have 2 essential roles in ductus arteriosus development, namely, vascular dilation and intimal cushion formation PMID: 17080198
  19. These data provide evidence of the role of prostaglandins in the pathogenesis of neuropathic pain, and suggest that not only infiltrating macrophages but also Schwann cells may be involved in the modulation of these mediators in response to nerve injury. PMID: 17110143
  20. These results confirmed the importance of COX-2/PGE2 in the healing mechanism of gastric ulcers and further suggested that the healing-promoting action of PGE2 is mediated by the activation of EP4 receptors and is associated with VEGF expression. PMID: 17673547
  21. Results suggest that PGE2 stimulates VEGF expression in gastric fibroblasts through the activation of EP4 receptors, and this effect may be involved in the healing promoting action of PGE2 on gastric ulcers. PMID: 17943254
