Prostaglandin E receptor 4
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the G-protein coupled receptor family. This protein is one of four receptors identified for prostaglandin E2 (PGE2). This receptor can activate T-cell factor signaling. It has been shown to mediate PGE2 induced expression of early growth response 1 (EGR1), regulate the level and stability of cyclooxygenase-2 mRNA, and lead to the phosphorylation of glycogen synthase kinase-3. Knockout studies in mice suggest that this receptor may be involved in the neonatal adaptation of circulatory system, osteoporosis, as well as initiation of skin immune responses.

We found that the prostaglandin E2 (PGE₂) receptors EP2 and EP4 were upregulated on virus-specific CTLs during chronic lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus (LCMV) infection and suppressed CTL survival and function.

In addition, our results demonstrate that engagement of the E-prostanoids 2 and 4 (EP2/EP4) receptors present on MM-1 cells is responsible for the observed increase in CCR7 mRNA expression and function during LXRα activation.

Targeted PGE2 suppression via genetic ablation of microsomal prostaglandin E-synthase 1 (mPGES-1) or by the pharmacological inhibition of PGE2 receptors EP2 and EP4 substantially improved survival against lethal IAV infection whereas PGE2 administration reversed this phenotype.

These PGs exert their actions through specific high-affinity G protein-coupled receptors named DP1-DP2 (PGD2 receptor 1-PGD2 receptor 2), EP1-EP4 (PGE2 receptor 1-4), FP (PGF2α receptor), IP (PGI2 receptor or prostacyclin receptor), and TP (thromboxane receptor) receptors, respectively.
