General description

N-oleoylglycine is an endogenous lipid containing glycine moiety in the head group. N-oleoylglycine structure contains an oleic acid, which is amide linked to glycine.


N-oleoylglycine has been used as a related endogenous compound to investigate the nature of the lipid head group required for OLCarn activity at GlyT2 (glycine transporter 2).

Biochem/physiol Actions

N-oleoylglycine acts as a substrate for peptidylglycine α amidating monooxygenase (PAM) for synthesis of oleoylamide. It is also involved in activation of G?protein?coupled receptor GPR132.

Oleamide (cis-9-octadecenamide) is a member of an emerging class of lipid-signaling molecules, the primary fatty acid amides. A growing body of evidence indicates that oleamide mediates fundamental neurochemical processes including sleep, thermoregulation, and nociception. Nevertheless, the mechanism for oleamide biosynthesis...

Concentrations of extracellular glycine in the CNS are regulated by two Na(+)/Cl(-) -dependent glycine transporters, GlyT1 and GlyT2. Selective inhibitors of GlyT1 have been developed for the treatment of schizophrenia, whilst selective inhibitors of GlyT2 are analgesic in animal models...

Discovery of the endogenous cannabinoid and N-acyl amide, anandamide (N-arachidonoyl ethanolamine), paved the way for lipidomics discoveries in the growing family of N-acyl amides. Lipidomics is a field that is broadening our view of the molecular world to include a...

Fatty acid primary amides have recently been recognized as mammalian hormones [Cravatt et al. (1995) Science 268, 1506-1509]. The route to their biosynthesis is unknown. Many mammalian peptide hormones also possess a C-terminal alpha-amide moiety that arises from the posttranslational...

The G-protein-coupled receptor GPR132, also known as G2A, is activated by 9-hydroxyoctadecadienoic acid (9-HODE) and other oxidized fatty acids. Other suggested GPR132 agonists including lysophosphatidylcholine (LPC) have not been readily reproduced. Here, we identify N-acylamides in particular N-acylglycines, as lipid...
