  • &NA; Endocannabinoids are endogenous lipids that activate selective G protein coupled receptors (CB1 and CB2), mostly found at neuronal presynaptic sites in the nervous system. One of the main consequences of the activation of CB receptors is a decrease in GABA or glutamate release, controlling cell excitability. Here we studied the expression of CB1 and CB2 receptors in E8C8 cultured retina cells (embryonic day 8 and 8 days in vitro) using immunocytochemistry and western blot analysis. We also… CONTINUE READING
