Entrez gene ID27306
Official gene symbolHPGDS
Full namehematopoietic prostaglandin D synthase
Gene summaryProstaglandin-D synthase is a sigma class glutathione-S-transferase family member. The enzyme catalyzes the conversion of PGH2 to PGD2 and plays a role in the production of prostanoids in the immune system and mast cells. The presence of this enzyme can be used to identify the differentiation stage of human megakaryocytes. [provided by RefSeq]
