Prostanoids originate from PGHS action on the 20-carbon polyunsaturated fatty acid: DGLA, AA and EPA. We used cDNA expression in Saccharomyces cerevisiae and enzyme immunoassays to compare the activities of two mouse PGHS isoforms and cDNAs encoding mouse prostaglandin I synthase and thromboxane A synthase and genomic DNA encoding Trypanosoma brucei prostaglandin F synthase. All genes were active and were put in Transgenic Arabidopsis thaliana plants producing DGLA.
