Cat. No. 0966
Chemical Name: (6aR)-trans-3-(1,1-Dimethylheptyl)-
Biological ActivityA highly potent cannabinoid receptor agonist (Ki values are 0.061 and 0.52 nM at cloned human CB1 and CB2 receptors respectively). Induces spatial memory deficits and suppresses hippocampal firing rates in rats. Also displays agonist activity at GPR55 (EC50 = 26 nM).
