Fatty acid amide hydrolase: from characterization to therapeutics.


Fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) is an integral membrane enzyme within the amidase-signature family that terminates the action of several endogenous lipid messengers, including oleamide and the endocannabinoid anandamide. The hydrolysis of such messengers leads to molecules devoid of biological activity, and, therefore, modulates a number of… (More)
