Data Sheet

Background: Cannabinoid Receptor 1, CNR1 also known as CB1, is involved in cannabinoid induced CNS effects. It acts by inhibiting intracellular adenylate cyclase activity and could be a receptor for anandamide. CNR1 is a potential target for the development of novel therapeutic drugs in the treatment of various conditions, such as pain, feeding disorders, vascular disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other central nerve system disorders.

Application: Functional assays
