Anandamide modulation of endotoxin-induced inflammation
(OMICS International, 2013-12-20)
The endocannabinoid system is comprised of the CB1 and CB2 receptors, the naturally occurring endogenous ligands, anandamide (AEA) and 2-arachidonyl glycerol (2-AG); and the enzymes involved in their synthesis and ...
Maternal deprivation is associated with sex-dependent alterations in nociceptive behavior and neuroinflammatory mediators in the rat following peripheral nerve injury
Early-life stress is associated with an increased risk of developing affective disorders and chronic pain conditions. This study examined the effect of maternal deprivation (MD) on nociceptive responding prior to and ...
Altered neuropathic pain behaviour in a rat model of depression is associated with changes in inflammatory gene expression in the amygdala
The association between chronic pain and depression is widely recognized, the comorbidity of which leads to a heavier disease burden, increased disability and poor treatment response. This study examined nociceptive ...
Pharmacological inhibition of monoacylglycerol lipase attenuates LPS-induced increases in cytokine expression in the rat frontal cortex and plasma: differential mechanisms of action
Background and purpose: This study determined the effect of JZL184, a selective inhibitor of monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL), the enzyme which preferentially catabolises the endocannabinoid 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG), ...
