Once activated by PGE2, the EP2 (Regan JW et al, 1994) receptor:ligand complex can mediate downstream effects by coupling to the G protein alpha s subunit and activate adenylyl cyclase (Schwaner I et al, 1995). EP4 receptors (Bastien L et al, 1994) are present on smooth muscle cells and their effects are mediated via coupling to G protein alpha s subunit and subsequent stimulation of adenylate cyclase (Wilson RJ et al, 2004).
