    Most G protein–coupled receptors (GPCRs) probably exist as homodimers, but it is increasingly recognized that GPCRs may also dimerize with other types of GPCRs and that this physical interaction may affect the function of either receptor. A study in this issue of the JCI demonstrates how...

    In this study, we have characterized functional EP receptors in human corpus cavernosum (HCC) tissue and in HCC smooth muscle cells (SMC). Using RNase protection assays, we determined expression of EP2, EP3I and EP3II receptor mRNA. In organ bath preparations of HCC tissue strips, PGE1 caused...

    Background/Aims: The phenotype switching of vascular smooth muscle cells (VSMCs) was associated with the onset or progression of the atherogenic process in type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Alprostadil (Prostaglandin E1, PGE1) as a bioactive drug had a protective effect on vascular function....

    Arterioles (200 to 400 μ in outer diameter) from dog and human skin were studied in vitro to measure changes in tension induced by prostaglandin E2 (PGE2) alone and in combination with catecholamines. The effects of sympathetic blocking drugs and of calcium on vessel response to PGE2 were...
