|Abstract:||The biological activity and anti-prostaglandin property of the prostaglandin analoque, ent-11-epi-15-epi PGE2 methyl ester, were studied on isolated guinea pig ileum. Ent-11-epi-15-epi PGE2 methyl ester contracted guinea pig ileum and produced a concentration-response curve parallel to that of PGE2. However, the former exhibited a lower maximal effect than PGE2. At concentrations > 10-6M, ent-11-epi-15-epi PGE2 methyl ester selectively antagonized contractile actions of PGE2 and PGE(2α) without affecting contractions induced by acetylcholine. These observations suggest that the PG analogue acted like a competitive antagonist to PGE2 and PGF(2α) on guinea pig ileum in vitro.|
