receptors, prostaglandin e

cell surface receptors which bind prostaglandins with a high affinity and trigger intracellular changes which influence the behaviour of cells. Prostaglandin e receptors prefer prostaglandin e2 to other endogenous prostaglandins. They are subdivided into ep1, ep2, and ep3 types based on their effects and their pharmacology.
