Anandamide-ceramide interactions in a membrane environment: Molecular dynamic simulations data
Anandamide Revisited: How Cholesterol and Ceramides Control Receptor-Dependent and Receptor-Independent Signal Transmission Pathways of a Lipid Neurotransmitter
TLDR
It is shown that cholesterol behaves as a binding partner for anandamide, and that following an initial interaction mediated by the establishment of a hydrogen bond, an andamide is attracted towards the membrane interior, where it forms a molecular complex with cholesterol after a functional conformation adaptation to the apolar membrane milieu.
Exploring the Therapeutic Landscape of Sphingomyelinases.
TLDR
One of the major enzyme classes in producing ceramide, sphingomyelinases (SMases), is discussed from a biochemical and structural perspective with an emphasis on their applicability as therapeutic targets.
Anti-Microbial Activity of Phytocannabinoids and Endocannabinoids in the Light of Their Physiological and Pathophysiological Roles
TLDR
The present review focuses on the anti-microbial activities of phytocannabinoid and endocannabinoids integrated with some selected issues of their many physiological and pharmacological activities.
Therapeutic and Vaccine Strategies for Stopping the COVID-19 Pandemic Based on Structural and Molecular Modeling Studies of Virus-Ganglioside Interactions
TLDR
The aim of this chapter is to give some clues for studying, in silico, the different therapeutic and vaccine strategies based on the ganglioside-binding domain of the NTD of the SARS-CoV-2 S protein.

Anandamide Protects from Low Serum-induced Apoptosis via Its Degradation to Ethanolamine*
TLDR
It is shown that AEA confers a protective activity in N18TG2 murine neuroblastoma cells subjected to low serum-induced apoptosis, and it is demonstrated that the protection from apoptosis by AEA is not mediated via the CB1 receptor, the CB2 receptor, or the vanilloid receptor 1.
Anandamide-induced apoptosis in Chang liver cells involves ceramide and JNK/AP-1 pathway.
TLDR
The results suggest that the induction of cell death in non-tumor Chang liver cells by anandamide was mediated by ceramide, JNK and AP-1 and was dependent on the activation of both the extrinsic and intrinsic pathways of apoptosis.
Potentiation of Cannabinoid-Induced Cytotoxicity in Mantle Cell Lymphoma through Modulation of Ceramide Metabolism
TLDR
It is suggested that R-MA induces cell death in MCL via CB1-mediated up-regulation of the de novo ceramide synthesis pathway and this is the first study were the cytotoxic effect of a cannabinoid is enhanced by modulation of ceramide metabolism.
Identification of intracellular carriers for the endocannabinoid anandamide
TLDR
Three fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs) known to be expressed in brain were examined as possible intracellular AEA carriers and represent the first proteins known to transport AEA from the plasma membrane to FAAH for inactivation and may therefore be novel pharmacological targets.
The Insertion and Transport of Anandamide in Synthetic Lipid Membranes Are Both Cholesterol-Dependent
TLDR
It is demonstrated that cholesterol stimulates both the insertion of anandamide into synthetic lipid monolayers and bilayers, and its transport across bilayer membranes, which provides a mechanistic explanation for the key regulatory activity played by membrane cholesterol in the responsiveness of cells to an andamide.
Anandamide induces cell death independently of cannabinoid receptors or vanilloid receptor 1: possible involvement of lipid rafts
TLDR
In contrast, methyl-β cyclodextrin (MCD), a membrane cholesterol depletor, completely blocked anandamide-induced cell death in a variety of cells, including PC12, C6, Neuro-2a, CHO, HEK, SMC, Jurkat and HL-60 cells, implying a novel role for of membrane lipid rafts in an andamide- induced cell death.
Relationships of apoptotic signaling mediated by ceramide and TNF-α in U937 cells
TLDR
The differences between ceramide and TNF-α in the kinetics and the commitment to the apoptotic pathway suggest that ceramide is not a second messenger in the apoptosis signaling of T NF-α, ceramide elevations, in TTF-α treated cells, are a consequence rather than a cause of apoptosis.
Relationships of apoptotic signaling mediated by ceramide and TNF-alpha in U937 cells.
TLDR
The differences between ceramide and TNF-alpha in the kinetics and the commitment to the apoptotic pathway suggest that ceramide is not a second messenger in the apoptosis signaling of T NF-alpha, ceramide elevations, in TNP-alpha treated cells, are a consequence rather than a cause of apoptosis.
Anandamide-induced cell death in primary neuronal cultures: role of calpain and caspase pathways
TLDR
The data indicate that AEA neurotoxicity appears not to be mediated by CB1, CB2, VR1 or NMDA receptors and suggest that calpain activation, rather than intrinsic or extrinsic caspase pathways, may play a critical role in anandamide-induced cell death.
