2001). This finding supports the hypothesis that at least some apparent inverse effects of SR141716A may be induced at sites that are not located on CB1 receptors (Sim-Selley et al. 2001). Indeed, it is already known that SR141716A not only binds to CB2 receptors at concentrations in the high nanomolar range and above (Table 3) but also behaves as a CB2 receptor inverse agonist at such concentrations, as measured by inhibition of [35 S]GTPγ S binding to hCB2 receptors on CHO cell membranes (MacLennan et al.

In addition, some cannabinoids, including anandamide, methanandamide, R-(+)-WIN55212, ∆9 -THC and cannabidiol, may serve as negative modulators of delayed rectifier potassium channels (reviewed in Pertwee 2004a). There is also evidence that nanomolar concentrations of anandamide can block low-voltage-activated (T-type) calcium channels through a mechanism that is independent of CB1 and CB2 receptors and of G proteins (Chemin et al. 2001). Evidence has also recently emerged for the presence of an allosteric site on the cannabinoid CB1 receptor (R.

Such migration can also be induced by 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (EC50 =25 nM). This endocannabinoid seems to act through both microglial CB2 receptors and microglial abnormal-cannabidiolsensitive receptors, since it is antagonized by cannabidiol at 300 nM and by SR144528 at 30 nM but not by 30 nM SR141716A (Walter et al. 2003). Indeed, it has been proposed that microglial CB2 receptors and abnormal-cannabidiol receptors interact in a synergistic manner when triggering the migration of microglial cells (Walter et al.
