CHROMATOGRAM DATA

SOURCE
Prostaglandin B2 was found in human seminal plasma in an amout of 50 micrograms per ml as measured in combination with prostaglandins A1,A2 and B1 (Ref. 0001).
CHEMICAL SYNTHESIS

METABOLISM
Prostaglandin E2 is converted to prostaglandin B2 non-enzymatically at alkaline condition (Ref. 0039). Huma serum contains a dehydrase converting prostaglandin E2 to A2, an isomerase converting prostaglandin A2 to C2, and another isomerase converting prostaglandin C2 to B2 (Ref. 0040).
