    ..Finally, our analyses suggest that the earlier placement of Myospalax as a member of the Cricetinae is the result of a single misidentified specimen, which was not a Myospalax...

    Gene 397:126-35. 2007
    ..Therefore we propose that cannabinoid receptors initially coevolved with a fatty acid ester ligand (akin to 2-AG) in ancestral metazoans, and affinity for fatty acid ethanolamide ligands (e.g., AEA) evolved thereafter...

    GW Pharmaceuticals, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA
    Mol Genet Genomics 277:555-70. 2007
    ..In conclusion, the zebrafish genome expresses a shifted repertoire of endocannabinoid genes. In vitro analyses are warranted before using zebrafish for cannabinoid development testing...

    GW Pharmaceuticals Ltd, Middlebury, VT 05753, USA
    J Mol Evol 65:267-76. 2007
    ..In conclusion, the endocannabinoid system is collectively under strong purifying selection, although some genes show evidence of adaptive evolution...
