High affinity electrophilic and photoactivatable covalent endocannabinoid probes for the CB1 receptor.

Abstract

We have designed and synthesized the first two high affinity covalent anandamide probes for the CB1 receptor by introducing either an electrophilic isothiocyanato or a photoactivatable azido group at the terminal carbon of the arachidonic acid moiety. The headgroup of these anandamide analogues was optimized by using a cyclopropylamide substituent to impart… (More)
