Gene: PTGIS (prostaglandin I2 synthase) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: PTGIS
Name: prostaglandin I2 synthase
Description: Exhibits heme binding activity and prostaglandin-I synthase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to cytokine stimulus; positive regulation of peroxisome proliferator activated receptor signaling pathway; and regulation of cellular biosynthetic process. Localizes to the caveola; endoplasmic reticulum; and nucleus. Implicated in essential hypertension and hypertension.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CYP8; CYP8A1; cytochrome P450, family 8, subfamily A, polypeptide 1; MGC126858; MGC126860; PGIS; prostacyclin synthase; prostaglandin I2 (prostacyclin) synthase; PTGI
