Chronic ethanol increases the cannabinoid receptor agonist anandamide and its precursor N-arachidonoylphosphatidylethanolamine in SK-N-SH cells.

Abstract

In an earlier study, we demonstrated that chronic ethanol (EtOH) exposure down-regulated the cannabinoid receptors (CB1) in mouse brain synaptic plasma membrane. In the present study, we investigated the effect of chronic EtOH on the formation of anandamide (AnNH), an endogenous cannabimimetic compound, and its precursor N… (More)
