The synthesis and pharmacology of 15 1-deoxy-delta8-THC analogues, several of which have high affinity for the CB2 receptor, are described. The deoxy cannabinoids include 1-deoxy-11-hydroxy-delta8-THC (5), 1-deoxy-delta8-THC (6), 1-deoxy-3-butyl-delta8-THC (7), 1-deoxy-3-hexyl-delta8-THC (8) and a series of 3-(1',1'-dimethylalkyl)-1-deoxy-delta8-THC(More)
The N-1 alkyl side chain of the aminoalkylindole analogues (AAI) has been implicated as one of a three-point interaction with the cannabinoid CB(1) receptor. In this study, the morpholinoethyl of WIN 55,212-2 was replaced with carbon chains of varying lengths ranging from a methyl to heptyl group. Additional groups were added to the naphthoyl and the C2(More)
The aim of this study was to characterize the activity of the cannabinoid CB2 receptor selective antagonist, N-[(1S)-endo-1,3,3-trimethyl bicyclo[2.2.1] heptan-2-yl]-5-(4-chloro-3-methylphenyl)-1-(4-methylbenzyl)-pyrazo le-3-carboxamide] (SR144528) in a number of biochemical assays and to look for evidence of cannabinoid CB2 receptors in the rat central(More)
To examine the effect of changing the amide bond of anandamide (5, AN) to a less hydrolyzable moiety, analogues 1a-1l, 2a-2c, 3a-3c, and 4a-4h were synthesized from commercially available arachidonyl alcohol or arachidonic acid and tested for their pharmacological activity. Arachidonyl ethers 1a-1k were obtained through the coupling of the arachidonyl(More)
This paper presents a cold chain monitoring system which is implemented by using ubiquitous computing technologies, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) & Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). In this paper, we discuss how cold supply chain works and how we can monitor and control cold supply chain by using wireless tracking and sensing technologies. We propose a(More)
1. The activities of a number of side-chain analogues of delta-8-tetrahydrocannabinol (Delta(8)-THC) in rat cerebellar membrane preparations were tested. 2. The affinities of each compound for the CB(1) receptor were compared by their respective abilities to displace [(3)H]-SR141716A and their efficacies compared by stimulation of [(35)S]-GTPgammaS binding.(More)
