26560040 Altered expression of EP2 in patients with aspirin-exacerbated respiratory disease contributes to deficient induction of IL-1RI, reducing the capacity of IL-1beta to increase COX-2 and mPGES-1 expression, which results in low PGE2 production
26538827 mPGES-1 is downregulated via EGR1 and has a role in caffeine inhibition on PGE2 synthesis of HBx hepatocytes
26498686 Data show that cyclooxygenase2 (COX2)overexpression induces prostaglandin E synthase (PTGES) through early growth response 1 (EGR1) in colorectal cancer cell lines.
26113609 mPGES-1 in prostate cancer controls stemness and amplifies epidermal growth factor receptor-driven oncogenicity
25988363 Data suggest that, in organization of enzymes in post-translational endoplasmic reticulum, mPGES1 is likely co-localized with COX2 (cyclooxygenase-2) within a distance of 14.4 A; mPGES-1 is localized much farther from COX1 (cyclooxygenase-1).
25817443 results demonstrate that mPGES-1 is a target gene of defective mismatch repair in human colorectal cancer, with functional consequence
25620445 we investigated the changes in promoter methylation patterns using methylation arrays and observed that the promoters of immunomodulatory factors, COX2 and PTGES, and migration-related factors, CXCR2 and CXCR4, were hypomethylated after 5-aza treatment
25139833 This study clearly demonstrated that the human COX-2 linked to mPGES-1 is a pathway that, when mediated by the prostaglandin E receptor, is linked to promoting cancer growth in a chronic inflammatory environment
25108236 mPGES-1 expression is positively correlated to hepatitis B virus X protein expression in hepatocellular carcinoma tissue.
24886859 Data indicate that inhibition of lysine-specific demethylase 1 activity prevented IL-1beta-induced histone H3 lysine 9 (H3K9) demethylation at microsomal prostaglandin E synthase 1 (mPGES-1) promoter.
