Oleoylethanolamide (OEA) is an endogenous fatty acid ethanolamine. Small intestine cells, adipose tissues, neurons and astrocytes produces OEA.
Oleoylethanolamide (OEA) is a lipid mediator, which helps to control various biological functions, like food intake. It modulates the gene expression in the small intestine. OEA has the ability to initiate several receptors, such as cannabinoid receptor type 1 (CB1), peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPARs) and G protein-coupled receptor 119 (GPR119).
