  Domain Name: GST_C_mPGES2
C-terminal, alpha helical domain of microsomal Prostaglandin E synthase Type 2. Glutathione S-transferase (GST) C-terminal domain family, microsomal Prostaglandin E synthase Type 2 (mPGES2) subfamily; mPGES2 is a membrane-anchored dimeric protein containing a CXXC motif which catalyzes the isomerization of PGH2 to PGE2. Unlike cytosolic PGE synthase (cPGES) and microsomal PGES Type 1 (mPGES1), mPGES2 does not require glutathione (GSH) for its activity, although its catalytic rate is increased two- to four-fold in the presence of DTT, GSH, or other thiol compounds. PGE2 is widely distributed in various tissues and is implicated in the sleep/wake cycle, relaxation/contraction of smooth muscle, excretion of sodium ions, maintenance of body temperature, and mediation of inflammation. mPGES2 contains an N-terminal hydrophobic domain which is membrane associated and a C-terminal soluble domain with a GST-like structure. The C-terminal GST-like domain contains two structural domains, an N-terminal thioredoxin-fold domain and a C-terminal alpha helical domain. The GST active site is located in a cleft between the two structural domains.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.
