Prostaglandin D2 (PGD2) plays a pharmacological role in allergic and asthmatic anaphylaxis, normal physiological sleep and lowering of body temperature, as well as inhibits platelet aggregation and relaxes vascular smooth muscle.1 tetranor-PGDM is an abundant urinary metabolite of PGD2 that is detectable both in human and mouse and, as such, is used as a biomarker of PGD2 biosynthesis.2 tetranor-PGDM lactone is a closed form of tetranor-PGDM. The formation of tetranor-PGDM lactone in biological samples has not been evaluated.
