URB-597 | FAAH inhibitor

URB-597 (546141-08-6) is a potent and selective fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor, IC50 = 3-5 nM.1 Produces cannabinoid CB1 and CB2 receptor-mediated analgesia in inflammatory pain states without causing side effects associated with cannabinoid receptor activation.2 Attenuates the anxiolytic-like effect of acetaminophen in a mouse model.3 Exerts anti-inflammatory effects in rat hippocampus and ameliorates age-related deficits.4 Off target effects of URB-597: Reduces tyrosine hydroxylase expression.5 Improves cognitive impairment caused by chronic cerebral hypoperfusion in a mouse model via inhibition of mTOR-dependent autophagy.6
