Pharmacology research & perspectives, 7(6), e00542-e00542 (2019-11-27)
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
Krishna Pratap Ravindranathan et al.
Journal of the American Chemical Society, 128(17), 5786-5791 (2006-04-28)
UV-vis absorbance measurements and associated studies of cytochrome P450 BM-3 in complex with N-palmitoylglycine (NPG) indicate that a conformational change occurs in the active site of the complex where the terminal atoms of the ligand move from a site distant
Ze-Yun Li et al.
PloS one, 10(3), e0120950-e0120950 (2015-03-19)
Curcumin, a principle bioactive component of Curcuma longa L, is well known for its anti-hyperlipidemia effect. However, no holistic metabolic information of curcumin on hyperlipidemia models has been revealed, which may provide us an insight into the underlying mechanism. In

Prostaglandins & other lipid mediators, 89(3-4), 131-134 (2009-04-22)
A large and growing family of over 70 endogenous lipids of the basic structure N-acyl amide has been identified during the last 10 years. Only a few of these lipids have been characterized for biological activity, however, those that have
D C Haines et al.
Biochemistry, 40(45), 13456-13465 (2001-11-07)
Cytochrome P450s constitute a superfamily of enzymes that catalyze the oxidation of a vast number of structurally and chemically diverse hydrophobic substrates. Herein, we describe the crystal structure of a complex between the bacterial P450BM-3 and the novel substrate N-palmitoylglycine
Heather B Bradshaw et al.
Life sciences, 92(8-9), 404-409 (2012-11-28)
Transient receptor potential channels (TRPs) form a large family of ubiquitous non-selective cation channels that function as cellular sensors and in many cases regulate intracellular calcium. Identification of the endogenous ligands that activate these TRP receptors is still under intense
Conformational dynamics of substrate in the active site of cytochrome P450 BM-3/NPG complex: insights from NMR order parameters.

PloS one, 8(4), e60314-e60314 (2013-04-09)
The G-protein coupled receptor 55 (GPR55) is activated by lysophosphatidylinositols and some cannabinoids. Recent studies found prominent roles for GPR55 in neuropathic/inflammatory pain, cancer and bone physiology. However, little is known about the role of GPR55 in CNS development and

Bollettino chimico farmaceutico, 134(5), 258-262 (1995-05-01)
N-palmitoyl glycine (PG), synthesized by the mixed anhydrides method, displayed nootropic effects (in the "step-down" test) as well as an anti-immobility action in the forced swimming test, in mice. However no anticonvulsant effects were obtained, even at high dose (300
Kristen A Jeffries et al.
Journal of lipid research, 57(5), 781-790 (2016-03-27)
Long-chain fatty acid amides are signaling lipids found in mammals and other organisms; however, details of the metabolic pathways for the N-acylglycines and primary fatty acid amides (PFAMs) have remained elusive. Heavy-labeled precursor and subtraction lipidomic experiments in mouse neuroblastoma
Heather B Bradshaw et al.
Vitamins and hormones, 81, 191-205 (2009-08-04)
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
Massimo Maffei et al.
Plant physiology, 134(4), 1752-1762 (2004-03-31)
Membrane potentials (V(m)) and intracellular calcium variations were studied in Lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus) leaves when the Mediterranean climbing cutworm (Spodoptera littoralis) was attacking the plants. In addition to the effect of the feeding insect the impact of several N-acyl
Sibylle Brenner et al.
The journal of physical chemistry. B, 111(27), 7879-7886 (2007-06-19)
The ferric spin state equilibrium of the heme iron was analyzed in wild-type cytochrome P450 BM3 and its F87G mutant by using temperature (T)-jump relaxation spectroscopy in combination with static equilibrium experiments. No relaxation process was measurable in the substrate-free
Puneet K Chowdhary et al.
Journal of biotechnology, 135(4), 374-376 (2008-07-01)
Quorum sensing is the process by which bacteria alter gene regulation in response to their population density. The enzymatic inactivation of quorum signals has shown promise for use in genetically modified organisms resistant to pathogens. We recently characterized the ability
