Prostaglandin G2 is an organic peroxide belonging to the family of prostaglandins. In vitro is stable enough to be isolated pure, while in vivo tends to quickly convert into prostaglandin H2 as a result of the catalytic enzyme COX. The molecule is an important intermediate reaction product of the metabolism of arachidonic acid by the cyclooxygenase.[1]
