Hydrolysis of the neuropeptide N-acetyl-L-aspartyl-L-glutamate (NAAG) by N-acetylated alpha-linked acidic dipeptidase (NAALADase) to release glutamate may be important in a number of neurodegenerative disorders in which excitotoxic mechanisms are implicated. The gene coding for human prostate-specific membrane antigen, a marker of prostatic carcinomas, and(More)
A novel series of benzimidazole CB2-receptor agonists was synthesized and the structure-activity relationship explored. The results showed agonistic activities with an EC(50) up to 0.5 nM and excellent selectivity (>4000-fold) over the CB1 receptor. The size of the substituent on the 2-position determined the level of agonism, ranging from inverse agonism(More)
