Cyclooxygenase-2 Information for Pathologists
Not related to Cytochrome c oxidase (COX). Cyclooxygenases 1 (COX1) and 2 (COX2), also known as prostaglandin H synthase, catalyze formation of prostaglandin from arachidonic acid. COX1 is constitutive form of enzyme on 9q; COX2 is inducible isoform on 1q, has 61% sequence homology with COX1. Regulated by mitogens, tumor promoters, cytokines, serum, free fatty acids, NSAIDs, selective COX2 inhibitors. Increased expression associated with poor clinical outcome in stage I/II non-small cell lung carcinoma (Arch Pathol Lab Med 2005;129:1113), possibly poorer outcome in follicular thyroid carcinoma (Arch Pathol Lab Med 2005;129:736).
Common Uses By Pathologists:
Endothelial cells (cytoplasmic) as well as breast, colorectal, esophageal, liver, lung, ovary, pancreas, prostate, skin, stomach tumors stain positive for COX2.
