|Synonyms||GPR120, GPR129, O3FAR1, PGR4|
|Function||Receptor for medium and long-chain free fatty acids (FFAs). Signals via a G(q)/G(11)-coupled pathway. Acts as a receptor for omega-3 fatty acids and mediates robust anti- inflammatory effects, particularly in macrophages and fat cells. The anti-inflammatory effects involve inhibition of TAK1 through a beta-arrestin 2 (ARRB2)/TAB1-dependent effect, but independent of the G(q)/G(11)-coupled pathway. Mediates potent insulin sensitizing and antidiabetic effects by repressing macrophage- induced tissue inflammation. May mediate the taste of fatty acids. Mediates FFA-induced inhibition of apoptosis in enteroendocrine cells. May play a role in the regulation of adipocyte development and differentiation.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. Note=Colocalized with ARRB2 following DHA treatment.|
|Tissue Location||Abundant expression in the intestinal tract. Highly expressed in adipose tissue, small intestine and pancreas|
