Replacement of the hydroxy cyclopentanone ring in PGE(2) with chemically more stable heterocyclic rings and substitution of the unsaturated alpha-alkenyl chain with a metabolically more stable phenethyl chain led to the development of potent and selective analogs of PGE(2). Compound 10f showed the highest potency and selectivity for EP(4) the receptor.
