Noladin ether (NE) is a putative endogenously occurring cannabinoid demonstrating agonist activity at CB1 receptors. Because of reported selective affinity for CB1 receptors, the pharmacological actions of NE at CB2 receptors have not been examined. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to characterize the binding and functional properties of NE at human CB2 receptors stably expressed in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells as well as in HL-60 cells, which express CB2 receptors endogenously… Expand
