  • 15d-PGJ2
  • 15-deoxy-delta12,14-prostaglandin J2
  • 11-oxo-5Z,9,12E,14E-prostatetraenoic acid

General information

  • 15d-PGJ2 treatment reduces the levels of inflammatory mediators produced by splenic macrophages. [1]
  • 15d-PGJ2 and its inducers are used as FCB (Cycloanthranilylproline-derivative), that is a new strategy for cancer-therapy. [2]
  • 15d-PGJ2 enhances the anti-tumor action of docetaxel by peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-gamma-dependent and -independent mechanisms mediated by induction of apoptosis. [3]
  • 15d-PGJ2 inhibits aurora-B kinase activity, which coincides with the down-regulation of survivin. [4]
  • 15d-PGJ2 can sensitize TRAIL (TNF-related apoptosis-inducing ligand)-resistant cells to TRAIL. [2]
