Abstract (English)

So far two human cannabinoid receptors (hCBRs) have been identified, both belonging to the family of G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs): the hCB1R mainly located in the brain and the hCB2R predominantly located in the periphery on immune cells. Because of their involvement in many physiological functions, such as movement, metabolic regulation, host defense, analgesia and memory, there is still ...
