Brodifacoum does not modulate human cannabinoid receptor-mediated hyperpolarization of AtT20 cells or inhibition of adenylyl cyclase in HEK 293 cells
Jörg Oehlmann –– The article provides evidence on topic which has been discussed intesively in science and the media: a potential interaction of brodifacoum with human cannabinoid receptors. While it has been speculated that brodifacoum may enhance the effects of cannabinoids, this article clearly shows that bordifacoum does not interact with human CB1 and CB2 receptors as the most probable target structure.
