PTGER1 Receptor for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). The activity of this receptor is mediated by G(q) proteins which activate a phosphatidylinositol-calcium second messenger system. May play a role as an important modulator of renal function. Implicated the smooth muscle contractile response to PGE2 in various tissues. Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family. Abundant in kidney. Lower level expression in lung, skeletal muscle and spleen, lowest expression in testis and not detected in liver brain and heart.
