Suppression of Water Intake by the E Prostaglandins
The prostaglandins (PGs) are unsaturated fatty acids produced and released by virtually every organ of the body including the brain, the kidney and the vasculature. Since their discovery in the 1930s and synthesis in the 1960s, the list of PGs and PG-like substances, as well as the physiological systems known to be affected by these substances, has grown to immense proportions.
