Unfortunately AM 404 (in Tocrisolve™ 100) (Cat. No. 1685) has been withdrawn from sale for commercial reasons.
Cat.No. 1685 - AM 404 (in Tocrisolve 100) | C26H37NO2 | CAS No. 198022-70-7
Description: Anandamide transport inhibitor (in water-soluble emulsion)
Chemical Name: N-(4-Hydroxyphenyl)-5Z,8Z,11Z,14Z-eicosatetraenamide

Biological Activity

Competitive and selective inhibitor of carrier-mediated anandamide transport (IC50 = 1 μM), in water-soluble emulsion (for details see TocrisolveTM 100 Cat. No. 1684). Does not activate CB1 receptors or inhibit anandamide hydrolysis but has been shown to activate native and cloned vanilloid receptors (pEC50 = 7.4). Active in vivo. Also available as solid AM 404 (Cat. No. 1116).
