Disease relevance of ZK118182


High impact information on ZK118182

  • Interestingly, synthetic DP receptor-specific agonists such as BW245C (K(i)=64.7+/-1.0 nM; n=3) and ZK118182 (K(i)=425+/-42 nM; n=4), and the purported EP(3) receptor-specific ligand enprostil (K(i)=43.1+/-4.4 nM), also displayed high affinity for the EP(4) receptor [2].
  • ZK110841 and ZK118182 exhibited a relatively high potency at the adenylyl cyclase-coupled EP(2) receptor in human nonpigmented ciliary epithelial cells but were partial agonists [3].
  • DP receptor agonists produced cAMP in embryonic bovine tracheal fibroblasts with different potencies (EC(50) values in nM): ZK118182 (18 +/- 6), RS93520 (28 +/- 6), SQ27986 (29 +/- 7), ZK110841 (31 +/- 7), BW245C (53 +/- 16), and PGD(2) (98 +/- 10) [3].
