Albert Einstein memorial lectures by Raphael Mechoulam ( )
8 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 723 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This volume consists of a selection of the Albert Einstein Memorial Lectures presented annually at the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities. Delivered by eminent scientists and scholars, including Nobel laureates, they cover a broad spectrum of subjects in physics, chemistry, life science, mathematics, historiography and social issues. This distinguished memorial lecture series was inaugurated by the Israel Academy of Sciences and Humanities following an international symposium held in Jerusalem in March 1979 to commemorate the centenary of Albert Einstein's birth. Considering that Einstein's interests, activities and influence were not restricted to theoretical physics but spanned broad fields affecting society and the welfare of humankind, it was felt that these memorial lectures should be addressed to scientists, scholars and erudite laypersons rather than to physicists alone
Cannabinoids as therapeutics by Raphael Mechoulam ( )
19 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Only a few years ago the endocannabinoid system was unknown, but today we are aware that endocannabinoids are involved in many functions of the mammalian body - neuroprotection, appetite and suckling, pain, reproduction, anxiety, memory and bone formation. This volume presents an up-to-date picture of some of the major fields of endocannabinoid research. It summarizes the actions of the endocannabinoids on various physiological systems and opens new therapeutic windows on to a large number of diseases." "The intended audience for this book is drug researchers (including medicinal chemists, pharmacologists and clinicians), neuroscientists, physiologists, and clinicians interested in the effect of the endocannabinoid system in various physiological systems."--Jacket

Human Brain Endothelium: Coexpression and Function of Vanilloid and Endocannabinoid Receptors ( )
1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
The arachidonic acid derivative, 2-arachidonoyl-glycerol (2-AG), was initially isolated from gut and brain; it is also produced and released from blood and vascular cells. Many of the 2-AG-induced cellular responses (i.e., neuromodulation, cytoprotection and vasodilation) are mediated by cannabinoid receptors CB1 abd CB2. The findings presented here demonstrate the expression of CB1, CB2 and TRPVl receptors on cerebromicrovascular endothelial cells (HBEC). The expression of TRPVl, CB1 and CB2 receptor mRNA and proteins were demonstrated by RT-PCR and polyclonal antibodies, respectively. The endocannabinoid 2-AG, and other related compounds [anandamide (ANA), methanandamide (m-ANa), N-(hydroxyphenyl-arachidonyl-ethanolamide) (AM404) and capsaicin] dose-dependently stimulated Ca(exp 2+) influx in HBEC. the selective TRPVl receptor antagonist (capsazepine), CBl receptor natagonist (SR141716A) and CB2 receptor antagonist (SR144528) inhibited these responses. The effects of capsaicin, a specific agonist for TRPVl receptors, were inhibited by capsazepine, but only weakly by CB1 or CB2 receptor antagonists. 2-AG also induced phosphorylation of vasodilator-stimulated phosphoprotein (VASP); this response was mediated by VR1 receptors. These studies clearly indicate that 2-AG and other related compounds may function as agonists on VR1 receptors, as well as CB1 and CB2 receptors, and implicated these factors in various HBEC functions
