Biosynthetic Pathways of the Endocannabinoid Anandamide

Anandamide (= N-arachidonoylethanolamine) is the first discovered endocannabinoid, and belongs to the class of bioactive, long-chain N-acylethanolamines (NAEs). In animal tissues, anandamide is principally formed together with other NAEs from glycerophospholipid by two successive enzymatic reactions: 1) N-acylation of phosphatidylethanolamine to generate N-acylphosphatidylethanolamine (NAPE) by Ca2þ-dependent N-acyltransferase; 2) release of NAE from NAPE by a
