Evidence that the prostaglandin-like substances from Propionibacterium acnes are not identical with PGE2.

PMID: 7358133  

The prostaglandin-like substances (PLS) isolated from P. acnes were investigated by reversed phase chromatography and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry. These analyses demonstrated that PLS were not identical with PGE2, which supports a concept of PLS as a potential mediator of the inflammatory process in acne vulgaris.
