Biological Activity

Description JZL 184 is the first selective inhibitor of monoacylglycerol lipase (MAGL) with IC50 of 8 nM.
MAGL [1]
8 nM
In vitro

JZL184 is a useful tool for studying the effects of endogenous 2-AG signaling. JZL184 displays time-dependent inhibition of MAGL and exhibits >300-fold selectivity for MAGL over FAAH in vitro. JZL184 does not interact with CB1 or CB2 receptors and does not inhibit the 2-AG biosynthetic enzymes diacylglycerol lipase-αand diacylglycerol lipase-β, or the arachidonic acid–mobilizing enzyme cytosolic phospholipase A2 group IVA.

In vivo JZL184 produced a rapid and sustained blockade of brain 2-AG hydrolase activity in mice, resulting in eight-fold elevations in endogenous 2-AG levels that are maintained for at least 8 h. JZL184-treated mice showed a wide array of CB1-dependent behavioral effects, including analgesia, hypomotility and hypothermia, that suggest a broad role for 2-AG–mediated endocannabinoid signaling throughout the mammalian nervous system.

Protocol (from reference)

Kinase Assay:[1]
  • activity-based protein profiling (ABPP):

    Mouse brains are Dounce-homogenized in PBS, pH7.5, followed by a low-speed spin (1,400×, 5 min) to remove debris. The supernatant is then subjected to centrifugation (64,000×, 45 min) to provide the cytosolic fraction in the supernatant and the membrane fraction as a pellet. The pellet is washed and resuspended in PBS buffer by sonication. Total protein concentration in each fraction is determined using a protein assay kit. Samples are stored at -80 °C until use. Mouse brain membrane proteomes, are diluted to 1 mg/mL in PBS and pre-incubated with varying concentrations of inhibitors (1 nM to 10 mM) for 30 min at 37 °C before the addition of FP-rhodamine at a final concentration of 2 mM in a 50 mL total reaction volume. After 30 min at 25 °C, the reactions are quenched with 4×SDS-PAGE loading buffer, boiled for 5 min at 90 °C, subjected to SDS-PAGE and visualized in-gel using a flatbed fluorescence s

Method for preparing DMSO master liquid: mg drug pre-dissolved in μL DMSO ( Master liquid concentration mg/mL, Please contact us first if the concentration exceeds the DMSO solubility of the batch of drug. )

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next addμL PEG300, mix and clarify, next addμL Tween 80, mix and clarify, next add μL ddH2O, mix and clarify.

Method for preparing in vivo formulation: Take μL DMSO master liquid, next add μL Corn oil, mix and clarify.

Note: 1. Please make sure the liquid is clear before adding the next solvent.
2. Be sure to add the solvent(s) in order. You must ensure that the solution obtained, in the previous addition, is a clear solution before proceeding to add the next solvent. Physical methods such
as vortex, ultrasound or hot water bath can be used to aid dissolving.
