Microsomal Prostaglandin E2 Synthase-1 (mPGES-1), with cyclooxygenase-2 (COX-2), synthesizes PGE2, which is directly involved in signaling during inflammation, fever and pain. 5-Lipoxygenase (5-LO) initiates the synthesis of leukotrienes (LTs), which are pro-inflammatory mediators. CAY10589 is a dual inhibitor of mPGES-1 (IC50 = 1.3 μM) and 5-LO (IC50 = 1.0 μM).1 It effectively inhibits PGE2 and LT synthesis in both cell free and intact cell assays. CAY10589 has minor effects on COX-1 and COX-2, inhibiting these enzymes 34% and 38.8%, respectively, at 10 μM.1

Cayman Chemical Company regularly evaluates our shipping methods to ensure product stability is maintained and our corporate environmental impact is minimized. Products selected for review are evaluated and shipping methods are certified by our Scientists. While occasionally our method of shipping a product may change, rest assured the shipping conditions on all Cayman Chemical products have been reviewed and validated.

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.
