N-Arachidonoyldopamine | Endogenous TRPV1 activator

N-Arachidonoyldopamine (199875-69-9) is an endogenous conjugate of arachidonic acid and dopamine.1 May be the “endogenous capsaicin like substance” in the CNS acting at TRPV1 channels, EC50~ 50 nM1. Also acts as a selective cannabinoid CB1 agonist (Ki=0.25 and 15 μM for CB1 and CB2 respectively)2 and results in a distinct signaling profile from any known cannabinoid3. Competitive inhibitor of FAAH and anandamide transport.4. Modulates acute systemic inflammation via non-hematopoietic TRPV1.5
