Misoprostol, a synthetic E prostaglandin, has been shown to prevent tissue corrosion induced by certain anti-inflammatory compounds. This E1 analog displays agonist activity at EP receptors and decreases NSAID-induced gastric ulcerations. Additionally, Misoprostol has been shown to have negative effects on the murine nervous system by altering the intracellular calcium levels in neuroblastoma cells. Other experiments have noted that Misoprostol has the ability to affect serum concentration of β2-microglobulin, which is related to antigen presentation on hepatocyte surface. Misoprostol is an activator of EP1, EP2, EP3 and EP4.
