Abstract

QM/MM modelling of FAAH inactivation by O-biphenyl-3-yl carbamates identifies the deprotonation of Ser241 as the key reaction step, explaining why FAAH is insensitive to the electron-donor effect of conjugated substituents; this may aid design of new inhibitors with improved selectivity and in vivo potency.
