The uptake by cells of 2-arachidonoylglycerol, an endogenous agonist of cannabinoid receptors.

Abstract

It is not yet clear if the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) is transported into cells through the same membrane transporter mediating the uptake of the other endogenous cannabinoid, anandamide (N-arachidonoylethanolamine, AEA), and whether this process (a) is regulated by cells and (b) limits 2-AG pharmacological actions. We have studied… (More)
