This gene encodes an enzyme that catalyzes the hydrolysis of 2-arachidonoyl glycerol (2-AG) the main endocannabinoid lipid transmitter that acts on cannabinoid receptors CB1 and CB2. The endocannabinoid system is involved in a wide range of physiological processes including neurotransmission mood appetite pain appreciation addiction behavior and inflammation. Mutations in this gene are associated with the neurodegenerative disease PHARC (polyneuropathy hearing loss ataxia retinitis pigmentosa and cataract) resulting from an inborn error of endocannabinoid metabolism. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been noted for this gene.[provided by RefSeq Jan 2011]
