Accepted name: prostaglandin-F synthase
Reaction: (5Z,13E)-(15S)-9α,11α,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate + NADP+ = (5Z,13E)-(15S)-9α,15-dihydroxy-11-oxoprosta-5,13-dienoate + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): prostaglandin-D2 11-reductase; reductase, 15-hydroxy-11-oxoprostaglandin; PGD2 11-ketoreductase; PGF synthetase; prostaglandin 11-ketoreductase; prostaglandin D2-ketoreductase; prostaglandin F synthase; prostaglandin F synthetase; synthetase, prostaglandin F; PGF synthetase; NADPH-dependent prostaglandin D2 11-keto reductase; prostaglandin 11-keto reductase
Systematic name: (5Z,13E)-(15S)-9α,11α,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate:NADP+ 11-oxidoreductase
Comments: Reduces prostaglandin D2 and prostaglandin H2 to prostaglandin F2; prostaglandin D2 is not an intermediate in the reduction of prostaglandin H2. Also catalyses the reduction of a number of carbonyl compounds, such as 9,10-phenanthroquinone and 4-nitroacetophenone.

Accepted name: prostaglandin-E2 9-reductase
Reaction: (5Z,13E)-(15S)-9α,11α,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate + NADP+ = (5Z,13E)-(15S)-11α,15-dihydroxy-9-oxoprosta-5,13-dienoate + NADPH + H+
Other name(s): PGE2-9-OR; reductase, 15-hydroxy-9-oxoprostaglandin; 9-keto-prostaglandin E2 reductase; 9-ketoprostaglandin reductase; PGE-9-ketoreductase; PGE2 9-oxoreductase; PGE2-9-ketoreductase; prostaglandin 9-ketoreductase; prostaglandin E 9-ketoreductase; prostaglandin E2-9-oxoreductase
Systematic name: (5Z,13E)-(15S)-9α,11α,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate:NADP+ 9-oxidoreductase
Comments: Reduces prostaglandin E2 to prostaglandin F2α. A number of other 9-oxo- and 15-oxo-prostaglandin derivatives can also be reduced to the corresponding hydroxy compounds. May be identical with EC 15-hydroxyprostaglandin dehydrogenase (NADP+).

Accepted name: prostamide/prostaglandin F synthase
Reaction: thioredoxin + (5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11-epidioxy-15-hydroxy-prosta-5,13-dienoate = thioredoxin disulfide + (5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate
Glossary: prostamide H2 = (5Z)-N-(2-hydroxyethyl)-7-{(1R,4S,5R,6R)-6-[(1E,3S)-3-hydroxyoct-1-en-1-yl]-2,3-dioxabicyclo[2.2.1]hept-5-yl}hept-5-enamide
prostamide F = (5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11,15-trihydroxy-N-(2-hydroxyethyl)prosta-5,13-dien-1-amide
prostaglandin H2 = (5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11-epidioxy-15-hydroxy-prosta-5,13-dienoate
prostaglandin F = (5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11,15-trihydroxyprosta-5,13-dienoate
Other name(s): prostamide/PGF synthase; prostamide F synthase; prostamide/prostaglandin F synthase; tPGF synthase
Systematic name: thioredoxin:(5Z,9α,11α,13E,15S)-9,11-epidioxy-15-hydroxy-prosta-5,13-dienoate oxidoreductase
Comments: The enzyme contains a thioredoxin-type disulfide as a catalytic group. Prostamide H2 and prostaglandin H2 are the best substrates; the latter is converted to prostaglandin F. The enzyme also reduces tert-butyl hydroperoxide, cumene hydroperoxide and H2O2, but not prostaglandin D2 or prostaglandin E2.
