Cat. No. 1815
Alternative Name: PIA
Chemical Name: N-(1-Methylethyl)-hexadecanamide
Biological ActivityInhibitor of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH); pIC50 = 4.89 for inhibition of [3H]-anandamide metabolism. Displays little binding to CB1 and CB2 receptors (IC50 > 100 μM) and very weakly blocks anandamide uptake (IC50 ~ 100 μM). Inhibits proliferation of C6 glioma cells.
