Prostaglandin F2β (PGF2β) is the 9β-hydroxy stereoisomer of PGF2α. It is much less active than PGF2α in antifertility and bronchoconstrictor activities.1,2,3 PGF2β exhibits bronchodilating activity in guinea pigs and cats and antagonizes the bronchoconstrictor activity of PGF2α.3

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
