AM404, also known as N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)arachidonoylethanolamide, is an active metabolite of paracetamol (acetaminophen), responsible for all or part of its analgesic action.[1]

Pharmacology

AM404 was originally reported to be an endogenous cannabinoid reuptake inhibitor, preventing the transport of anandamide and other related compounds back from the synaptic cleft, much in the same way that common SSRI antidepressants prevent the reuptake of serotonin. Recent work on the mechanism of AM404 has suggested that the inhibition of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) by AM404 is likely responsible for all of its attributed "reuptake" properties, since intracellular FAAH hydrolysis of anandamide changes the intra/extracellular anandamide equilibrium.[2]

AM404 is also TRPV1 agonist, and also prevents cyclooxygenase COX-1 and COX-2 and prostaglandin synthesis. AM404 is thought to induce its analgesic action through its activity on the cannabinoid, COX and TRPV systems, all of which are present in pain and thermoregulatory pathways.[3]

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
