Cat. No. 3381
Chemical Name: N-(5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z)-5,8,11,14-eicosat
Biological ActivityMetabolically stable anandamide uptake inhibitor (IC50 = 2.1 - 2.5 μM) and fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor (Ki = 3.18 μM). Inhibits N-arachidonylethanolamine (AEA) accumulation (IC50 = 24 μM) and hydrolysis (Ki = 3 μM), and inhibits N-palmitoylethanolamine (PEA) hydrolysis (IC50 = 36 μM) in cerebellar granule neurons. Also acts as a non-selective cannabinoid receptor partial agonist (EC50 values are 189 and 271 nM at CB2 and CB1 receptors respectively).
