Cat. No. 1116
Chemical Name: N-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)-5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z-e
Biological ActivityCompetitive and selective inhibitor of carrier-mediated anandamide transport (IC50 = 1 μM). Does not activate CB1 receptors or inhibit anandamide hydrolysis but has been shown to activate native and cloned vanilloid receptors (pEC50 = 7.4). Active in vivo. Also available in water soluble emulsion (Cat. No. 1685).
