Prostaglandin transporter (PGT), also known as SLCO2A1, has been identified as a functional prostaglandin (PG) carrier that mediates either the release of newly-synthesized PGs by cells and/or the uptake of PGs prior to intracellular oxidation. Northern blot analysis revealed that PGT mRNA has broad tissue distribution, suggesting its role in the transport and/ or metabolic clearance of PG in diverse tissues (8787677).
