  Domain Name: PGDH
Prostaglandin dehydrogenases. Prostaglandins and related eicosanoids are metabolized by the oxidation of the 15(S)-hydroxyl group of the NAD+-dependent (type I 15-PGDH) 15-prostaglandin dehydrogenase (15-PGDH) followed by reduction by NADPH/NADH-dependent (type II 15-PGDH) delta-13 15-prostaglandin reductase (13-PGR) to 15-keto-13,14,-dihydroprostaglandins. 13-PGR is a bifunctional enzyme, since it also has leukotriene B(4) 12-hydroxydehydrogenase activity. These 15-PGDH and related enzymes are members of the medium chain dehydrogenase/reductase family. The medium chain dehydrogenases/reductase (MDR)/zinc-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase-like family, which contains the zinc-dependent alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH-Zn) and related proteins, is a diverse group of proteins related to the first identified member, class I mammalian ADH. MDRs display a broad range of activities and are distinguished from the smaller short chain dehydrogenases (~ 250 amino acids vs. the ~ 350 amino acids of the MDR). The MDR proteins have 2 domains: a C-terminal NAD(P) binding-Rossmann fold domain of a beta-alpha form and an N-terminal catalytic domain with distant homology to GroES.
No pairwise interactions are available for this conserved domain.

 If you've navigated here from a protein, hovering over a position on the weblogo will display the corresponding protein position for that domain position.

 The histograms below the weblogo indicate mutations found on the domain. Red is for disease (OMIM) and blue is for SNPs.

 Functional Features are displayed as orange boxes under the histograms. You can choose which features are displayed in the box below.
