Prostaglandin reductase 2 (PTGR2) is a 13-prostaglandin reductase which metabolises eicosanoids by catalysing NADH/NADPH-dependant double bond reduction in 15-keto-prostaglandin E2 (15k-PGE2) and F2alpha (15k-PGF2a) to produce 13,14-dihydro-15-keto-prostaglandin E2 (dhk-PGE2) and F2alpha (dhk-PGF2a) respectively (Wu et al. 2008). This has been inferred from the reaction event in mice involving prostaglandin reductase 2 (Ptgr2) (Chou et al. 2007).
