  • Key concept=Stimulation of endocannabinoid transport with polyunsaturated (22:6n-3) fatty acids (DHA, EPA) to target major depressive disorders (MDD) , epilepsy, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), multiple sclerosis (MS), posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), Parkinson's disease (PD), and Alzheimer's disease (AD).
  • Identification of CREB phosphorylation in the hippocampus promoting brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) expression, a molecular marker for learning-dependent synapse formation. [1] [2]
  • Intracellular CB1/BDNF signaling mediate on-demand neuroprotection on excitatory (glutamatergic) synapses and in particular astrocytes. [3]
    • DHA supplementation improves mitochondrial function and neuronal survival (homeostasis). [4]
  • Identification of a functional GPR40-GPR55 receptor heteromer with potent anti-inflammatory, antiglutamatergic and neuroprotective properties.
    • Anti-proliferative effects of DHEA on prostate cancer cell lines. [5]
    • A synaptogenic endocannabinoid promoting synaptogenesis.
    • Antioxidant (cytoprotective) properties of GPR40-GPR55 heteromer.
  • Effects of the endothelial CB2 receptor persistent activation on monocyte subpopulations/microglial activation. [6]
    • Anti-inflammatory role of anandamide and 2-AG signaling in LPS-stimulated microglial activation of endogenous CB2 receptor. [7]
