Abstract

In the present work, we have designed and synthesized a series of arachidonic acid derivatives of general structure I which have been characterized as highly potent and selective inhibitors of anandamide transporter (IC(50) = 24-0.8 microM, K(i) > 1000-5000 nM for CB(1) and CB(2) cannabinoid receptors and vanilloid VR(1) receptor). Among them, N-(3-furylmethyl)eicosa-5,8,11,14-tetraenamide deserves special attention as being the most potent endocannabinoid transporter inhibitor (IC(50) = 0.8 microM) described to date.
