New Target Receptors for Cannabinoids: GPR55 and GPR18
Author: Mary E. Abood, PhD
What is the evidence for additional cannabinoid receptors and what might they do? Dr. Abood takes learners through a close look at the endogenous cannabinoid system and the endogenous ligands that have been identified. Through a review of the receptor molecular structure and agonist/antagonist screens, the learner will see the potential for these receptors playing a physiological role in the central nervous system.
