PGE1 is produced by the metabolism of dihomo-y-linolenic acid (DGLA) by the cyclooxygenase pathway. PGE1 inhibits platelet aggregation (IC50 = 40 nM) and increases vasodilation.{960,4165}13,14-dihydro-16,16-difluoro PGE1 is a biologically active metabolite of PGE1, inhibiting platelet aggregation with comparable potency to the parent compound.{2126,4165} The addition of two electron-withdrawing fluorine atoms, which should stabilize the molecule against hydrolytic cleavage, may be expected to delay degradation in vivo.{17623} 13,14-dihydro-15(R,S)-hydroxy-16,16-difluoro PGE1-3,3’,4,4’-d4) contains four deuterium atoms at the 3, 3’, 4, and 4’ positions. It is intended for use as an internal standard for the quantification of 13,14-dihydro-15(R,S)-hydroxy-16,16-difluoro Prostaglandin E1 by GC- or LC-mass spectrometry (MS).
