Lipid mediator and analog of anandamide (Cat. No. 1339) that is involved in peripheral regulation of feeding. Selective GPR55 agonist (EC50 values are 0.44, >30 and >30 μM at GPR55, CB1 and CB2 respectively) and PPARα agonist (EC50 = 120 nM). Induces satiety through activation of PPARα and is also a ceramidase inhibitor. Also endogenous agonist at the GPR119 receptor.
