Cat. No. 1445
Alternative Name: NAGly
Chemical Name: N-(1-oxo-5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetrae
Biological ActivityGPR18 agonist (EC50 = 44.5 nM). Endogenous anandamide-like compound. Lacks affinity for CB1 receptors (Ki > 10 μM), VR1 receptors (EC50 > 10 μM) and anandamide transporters (IC50 > 50 μM) but causes hot-plate analgesia in mice when given orally, and suppresses tonic inflammatory pain. Also endogenous GlyT2 inhibitor.
