Role of TRPV1 and cannabinoid CB1 receptors in AM 404-evoked hypothermia in rats.


AM 404 inhibits endocannabinoid uptake and enhances the cannabinoid CB(1)-mediated effects of endogenous cannabinoids. Accumulating evidence also suggests that AM 404 acts at sites other than the endocannabinoid system. One site is the transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 cation channel (TRPV1). A useful endpoint for discriminating between TRPV1- or CB… (More)
