The bag cell neurons of the marine mollusk Aplysia are a putative multitransmitter system which utilizes two or more neuropeptides that are enzymatically cleaved from a common precursor protein. It has been proposed that one of the neuropeptides, egg-laying hormone (ELH), acts nonsynaptically as a neurotransmitter in the abdominal ganglion by diffusing long(More)
BACKGROUND CB1 cannabinoid receptors are G-protein coupled receptors for endocannabinoids including anandamide and 2-arachidonoylglycerol. Because these arachidonic acid metabolites possess a 20-carbon polyene chain as the alkyl terminal moiety, they are highly flexible with the potential to adopt multiple biologically relevant conformations, particularly(More)
