Identification of CB1 Receptor Allosteric Sites Using Force-Biased MMC Simulated Annealing and Validation by Structure–Activity Relationship Studies 2019 5 Positive allosteric modulation of the cannabinoid 1 receptor (CB1R) has demonstrated distinct therapeutic advantages that address several limitations associated with orthosteric agonism and has opened a promising therapeutic avenue for further drug d...
Isolation, Semisynthesis, Covalent Docking and Transforming Growth Factor Beta-Activated Kinase 1 (TAK1)-Inhibitory Activities of (5Z)-7-Oxozeaenol Analogues 2015 291 (5Z)-7-Oxozeanol and related analogues were isolated and screened to explore their activity as TAK1 inhibitors. Seven analogues were synthesized and more than a score of natural products isolated that examined the role that different areas of the mol...
(R)-N-(1-Methyl-2-hydroxyethyl)-13-(S)-methyl-arachidonamide (AMG315): A Novel Chiral Potent Endocannabinoid Ligand with Stability to Metabolizing Enzymes 2018 61 The synthesis of potent metabolically stable endocannabinoids is challenging. Here we report a chiral arachidonoyl ethanolamide (AEA) analogue, namely, (13S,1'R)-dimethylanandamide (AMG315, 3a), a high affinity ligand for the CB1 receptor (Ki of 7.8 ...
Synthesis and Pharmacology of 1-Methoxy Analogs of CP-47,497 2010 1717 Three 1-methoxy analogs of CP-47,497 (7, 8 and 19) have been synthesized and their affinities for the cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptors have been determined. Although these compounds exhibit selectivity for the CB2 receptor none have significant affi...
Synthesis, Pharmacological Evaluation, and Docking Studies of Novel Pyridazinone-Based Cannabinoid Receptor Type 2 Ligands 2018 52 In recent years, cannabinoid type 2 receptors (CB2R) have emerged as promising therapeutic targets in a wide variety of diseases. Selective ligands of CB2R are devoid of the psychoactive effects typically observed for CB1R ligands. Based on our recen...
Towards a molecular understanding of the cannabinoid related orphan receptor gpr18: A focus on its constitutive activity 2019 57 The orphan G-protein coupled receptor (GPCR), GPR18, has been recently proposed as a potential member of the cannabinoid family as it recognizes several endogenous, phytogenic, and synthetic cannabinoids. Potential therapeutic applications for GPR18 ...
Up in smoke: Uncovering a lack of evidence for proton pump inhibitors as a source of tetrahydrocannabinol immunoassay false positives 2018 18 Objective: It is recommended that positives in immunoassay drug screens be followed up with more specific confirmatory testing. The drug package insert for pantoprazole mentions reports of false-positive urine screening tests for tetrahydrocannabinol...
