Summary
The protein encoded by this gene is a Golgi membrane-associated prostaglandin E synthase candidate, which is capable of catalyzing the conversion of prostaglandin H2 to prostaglandin E2 in vitro. However, a study using mice deficient of this gene suggests that this enzyme does not contribute to prostaglandin E2 biosynthesis in vivo. This protein is synthesized as a Golgi membrane-bound protein, but its N-terminal hydrophobic region is cleaved off during protein maturation to produce the predominant soluble truncated form that still retains the enzyme activity. This soluble protein also has been shown to activate the transcription regulated by a gamma-interferon-activated transcription element (GATE), possibly via an interaction with CAAAT/enhancer-binding protein-beta.

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
