The prostaglandin synthesizing system m bovine seminal vesicles was characterized by a radiometric assay. Two main products were formed from [1-14C]-arachidonic acid, and their structures were confirmed by mass spectrometry. The less polar product was identical with prostaglandin E2 and the more polar one was identical with a new prostaglandin, i.e., 6-kepoprostaglandin F1α.
