6-methoxy Naphthalene Acetic Acid is a competitive and non-selective COX inhibitor with Ki values of 21 and 19 μM for ovine COX-1 and -2, respectively [1][2][3].

Cyclooxygenase (COX), also known as prostaglandin-endoperoxide synthase (PTGS, PGHS), is an enzyme responsible for formation of prostanoids, including thromboxane and prostaglandins such as prostacyclin. COX-1 is the constitutive isoform and is mainly responsible for the synthesis of cytoprotective prostaglandins in the gastrointestinal tract (GI) and of the proaggregatory thromboxane in blood platelets. COX-2 is inducible and short-lived that is stimulated by endotoxin, cytokines, and mitogens. COX-2 plays important roles in prostaglandin biosynthesis in inflammatory cells the central nervous system [1][2].

6-methoxy Naphthalene Acetic Acid (6-MNA) is a competitive and non-selective COX inhibitor with Ki values of 21 and 19 μM for ovine COX-1 and -2, respectively [1][2]. 6-MNA is a metabolite of nebumetome. 6-MNA inhibited human recombinant COX-1 and -2 with IC50 values of 70 and 20 μM, respectively [1].
