An imbalance in the rates of production and clearance of prostaglandin (PG) E2 under pathological conditions appears to affect the concentration of PGE2 in the CSF. This study demonstrated that microsomal PGE synthetase-1 (mPGES-1) is expressed in the pia mater and astrocytes, and a regulatory system for the PGE2 level in the CSF involves OAT3-mediated PGE2 uptake by choroid plexus epithelial cells. The findings provide a novel insight into the production and clearance of PGE2 in the CSF.
