Prostaglandin I2 (PGI2) is an unstable cyclooxygenase metabolite detected first in vascular endothelial cells.1,2,3 It elevates platelet cAMP and is a potent vasodilator and inhibitor of human platelet aggregation with an IC50 of 5 nM.4 PGI2 is stable in basic buffers (pH=8), but it is rapidly hydrolyzed to 6-
