Chemical synthesis, pharmacological characterization, and possible formation in unicellular fungi of 3-hydroxy-anandamide

Fungal Infection (Candida albicans)

Key Findings

Thus, 3(R)-HETE-producing yeasts might convert anandamide released by host cells at the site of infection into 3(R)-HAEA, and this event might contribute to the inflammatory and algogenous responses associated to fungal diseases.
