Endocannabinoid system as a drug target - Savinainen

Bioactive lipids, such as eicosanoids, endocannabinoids and lysophospholipids are endogenous signaling molecules with wide spectrum of (patho)physiological functions in regulating cellular activity. Typically, these lipophilic messengers are produced "on demand" from cell membrane precursors and ...
