    Prostaglandins are hormones that are produced, released, and effective locally; such agents are called autocoids. The prostaglandins are members of a family of substances called eicosanoids, which also include, among others, prostacyclin, thromboxane, and leukotrienes. It includes new topics such as prostaglandin synthetase enzyme, new synthetic eicosanoids, innovative analytical methods, the influence of cytokines in the regulation of synthesis and actions, newer eicosanoids that influence the cardiovascular system, and newly discovered roles in reproduction and interactions with nitric : $

    Eicosanoids are signaling molecules made by the enzymatic or non-enzymatic oxidation of arachidonic acid or other polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) that are, similar to arachidonic acid, 20 carbon units in length. Eicosanoids are a sub-category of oxylipins, i.e. oxidized fatty acids of diverse carbon units in length, and are distinguished from other oxylipins by their overwhelming.

      Please find below the lecture notes on eicosanoids. This will give you brief information on prostaglandins and leukotrienes. This will be useful in undergraduate level and will be useful as.   Eicosanoids • Prostaglandins and related compounds are collectively known as Eicosanoids. • Most are produced from Arachidonic acid, a carbon polyunsaturated fatty acid (5,8,11,eicosatetraenoic acid).

Prostaglandins and other eicosanoids derived from COX-1 and COX-2 are involved in a variety of physiologic and pathologic processes in the gastrointestinal by: PG, Prostaglandin; TX, thromboxane; PGI2, prostacyclin (PGE2, PGD2, and PGF2α differ from endoperoxide PGH2, as indicated).

COXs convert arachidonic acid into the PG endoperoxides PGG2 and PGH2. COXs are inhibited by NSAIDS such as aspirin and ibuprofen (see Chapter 36), leading to inhibition of PG and TX formation.

Eicosanoids and Inflammatory Responses. As indicated in the Table below, the major actions of the series-2 prostaglandins and thromboxanes (predominantly PGE 2 and TXA 2) are pro-inflammatory as are the series-4 leukotrienes (predominantly LTB 4).Thus, it makes sense that drugs that reduce the production of these compounds would be beneficial at reducing inflammation and the associated.
