The endocannabinoid system in invertebrates.

2002 Feb-Mar;66(2-3):353-61. The endocannabinoid system in invertebrates. Salzet M1, Stefano GB. Author information Abstract What is the role of the cannabinoid system in invertebrates and can it tell us something about the human system? We discuss in this review the possible presence of the cannabinoid system in invertebrates. Endocannabinoid processes, i.e., enzymatic hydrolysis, as well as cannabinoid receptors and endocannabinoids, have been […]

Endocannabinoids in the immune system and cancer.

 2002 Feb-Mar;66(2-3):319-32. Endocannabinoids in the immune system and cancer. Parolaro D1, Massi P, Rubino T, Monti E. Author information Abstract The present review focuses on the role of the endogenous cannabinoid system in the modulation of immune response and control of cancer cell proliferation. The involvement of cannabinoid receptors, endogenous ligands and enzymes for their biosynthesis and degradation, as well as of cannabinoid receptor-independent […]
