Potent EP2 receptor antagonist (IC50 = 16 nM for human EP2 receptors). Displays over 2000-fold selectivity for EP2 receptors over EP1, EP3, EP4, DP1 amd CRTH2 receptors; exhibits <30% binding at a diverse panel of GPCRs and ion channels at a concentration of 10 μM. Inhibits PGE2-induced increases in intracellular cAMP; reverses PGE2-invoked relaxation of mouse trachea (IC50 = 2.7 nM).
Sold for research purposes under agreement from Pfizer Inc.

Literature in this Area
Peripheral sensitization is the reduction in the threshold of excitability of sensory neurons that results in an augmented response to a given external stimulus. This poster outlines the excitatory and inhibitory signaling pathways involved in modulation of peripheral sensitization. The role of ion channels, GPCRs, neurotrophins, and cytokines in sensory neurons are also described.
