Fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), belonging to an amidase-signature (AS) protein family, is a membrane-bound protein predominantly in microsomal and mitochondrial fractions that catalyzes the hydrolysis of several bioactive lipids, including anandamide, 2-arachidonoylglycerol (2-AG) and oleamide. The mammalian FAAHs are 63 kDa (579 amino acids in length) proteins characterized by containing several domains defined by homology and function, including, a highly conserved seine-and-glycine-rich AS domain, a predicted transmembrane domain and a proline rich domain. Results of mutation studies suggest, unlike other members of AS protein family, the catalytic activity of FAAH is not associated with the Ser-His-Asp triad but possibly with Ser217 and Lys142.

- A4372 URB597 URB597, also known as KDS-4103, is a potent and selective inhibitor of fatty-acid amide hydrolase (FAAH), an enzyme catalyzing the intracellular hydrolysis of the endocannabinoid anandamide, with values of 50% inhibition concentration IC50 of 5 nM and 3 nM in rat brain membranes and human liver microsomes respectively.
- A4361 JNJ-1661010 JNJ-1661010, a piperazinyl phenyl urea with its structure distinct from alkylcarbamic acid esters and α–ketoheterocyclic compounds, is a potent and selective inhibitor of fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) that covalently binds to the active site of FAAH through cleavage of the urea functionality generating aniline and a FAAH-poperazinyl carbamate.
