Specifications

Clone Host Grade Applications
Polyclonal Rabbit Serum IH
The cyclo-oxygenase (Cox) enzyme catalyses the oxidation of arachidonic acid into prostaglandin H2. The enzyme is encoded by two related genes, Cox-l and Cox-2. The Cox-1 gene is constitutively and ubiquitously expressed, while the Cox-2 gene is only expressed at high levels upon induction by growth factors, cytokines and extracellular stimuli associated with cell activation. Many cell types associated with inflammation, such as monocytes, endothelial cells and fibroblasts, express the Cox2 gene upon induction. Besides there is evidence that it is expressed constitutively, however, the expression is usually low under physiological conditions. It has a role as a major mediator of inflammation and a role for prostanoid signaling in activity-dependent plasticity. It is expressed throughout the forebrain in discrete populations of neurons and is enriched in the cortex and hippocampus.
