Cat. No. 1411
Alternative Names: HU 310, 2-Arachidonyl glycerol ether
Chemical Name: 2-[(5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z)-Eicosatetraenylo
Biological ActivityEndogenous agonist for the GPR55 and CB1 receptors (EC50 values are 10 and 37 nM respectively) that displays selectivity over CB2 receptors (Ki values are 21.2 nM and > 3mM at CB1 and CB2 respectively). Causes sedation, hypothermia, intestinal immobility and mild antinociception in vivo. Attenuates sensory neurotransmission in rat mesenteric arteries via GPR55.
