8-iso Prostaglandin F (8-iso PGF) is an isomer of PGF with a non-enzymatic, non-cyclooxygenase origin. It is one of 64 possible isomers of PGF which can be produced by free radical peroxidation of arachidonic acid. 8-iso PGF exhibits very weak contraction of human umbilical vein artery1 and does not promote aggregation of human whole blood.1,2 However, 8-iso PGF moderately contracts both the canine and porcine pulmonary vein, although the effect is much weaker than that exhibited by other isoprostanes such as 8-iso PGE1, 8-iso PGE2, or 8-iso PGF3,4
