Suspected endocannabinoid. Does not bind classical endocannabinoid receptors (CB1/2) but targets GPR119.  

Chemical Name: 
2-oleoyl glycerol
IUPHAR entry: 
Wikipedia entry: 
Synthetic Pathways: 

PLCβ: Phospholipase C β

Produces Diacylglycerol (DAG) from phospholipids

DAGLα: Diacylglycerol Lipase α

Produces 2AG from DAG

DAGLβ: Diacylglycerol Lipase β

Produces 2AG from DAG (probably not involved in depolarisation-induced suppression of excitation/inhibition (DSE/DSI))

Degradation Pathways: 

MAGL: Monoacylglycerol Lipase

Serine hydrolase cleaving 2AG into arachidonic acid (AA) and glycerol

FAAH1: Fatty Acid Amide Hydrolase

Serine Hydrolase, probably more involved in Anandamide degradation
