CAS#: 1430634-79-9

Description: AB-002 is a homologue of AB-001, which is a cannibimimetic. It is a CB (cannabinoid) receptor ligand that governs the cannabimimetic potency. It is derived from adamantane and is less potent than other ligands which can induce significant hypothermic and bradycardic effects. Its role in binding CB receptors may be useful in therapeutic discovery for relief against MS, particularly when studying selective CB2 agonists.

Additional Information

The endocannabinoid system consists of at least two cannabinoid (CB) receptors, namely, the CB1 and CB2 receptors. Stimulation of the CB1 receptor leads to modulation of feeding behavior, through a proposed mechanism of N-type and P/Q-type calcium channel blockade while activating the inwardly rectifying potassium channels, implicating an important role for CB1 receptor in obesity and metabolic disorders through release of neuromodulators. However, the usage of the drugs may have severe side effects on the CNS such as depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts. Selective CB2 agonists represent an attractive therapeutic strategy for the treatment of a variety of diseases such as MS without psychiatric side effects mediated by the CB1 receptor.
