|Function||G-protein coupled receptor for medium and long chain saturated and unsaturated fatty acids that plays an important role in glucose homeostasis. Fatty acid binding increases glucose- stimulated insulin secretion, and may also enhance the secretion of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). May also play a role in bone homeostasis; receptor signaling activates pathways that inhibit osteoclast differentiation (By similarity). Ligand binding leads to a conformation change that triggers signaling via G-proteins that activate phospholipase C, leading to an increase of the intracellular calcium concentration. Seems to act through a G(q) and G(i)-mediated pathway.|
|Cellular Location||Cell membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein|
|Tissue Location||Detected in brain and pancreas. Detected in pancreatic beta cells.|

This gene encodes a member of the GP40 family of Gprotein-coupled receptors that are clustered together on chromosome19. The encoded protein is a receptor for medium and long chainfree fatty acids and may be involved in the metabolic regulation ofinsulin secretion. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associatedwith type 2 diabetes.
