Prostaglandin F2a (PGF2a) drives luteolysis and smooth muscle contraction by activating the FP receptor. 17-phenyl trinor PGF2a methyl ester is a lipophilic analog of 17-phenyl trinor PGF2a, a potent agonist for the FP receptor. 17-phenyl trinor PGF2a binds the FP receptor on ovine luteal cells with a relative potency of 756% compared to that of PGF2a.{2058} Esters of PGs serve as prodrugs, as they are efficiently hydrolyzed in certain tissues to generate the bioactive free acid.
