Free fatty acid receptor 4 (FFAR4, GPR120), is a member of the rhodopsin family of 7-transmembrane domain G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs). GPR120/FFAR4 is activated by long chain fatty acids. The protein is a potential therapeutic target for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). GPR120 is associated to insulin sensitizing, anti-inflammatory, and fat metabolism. Evidence shows that GPR120 may be involved in the development of obesity in mice and humans1-4. GPR120 regulates various physiological processes, including gut hormone secretion, islet function, osteoclastogenesis, anti-inflammation, and adipogenesis2-4.
GPR120 binds to omega-3 fatty acids and stabilizes the metabolic homeostasis through a cascade of physiological activities. GPR120 exerts its physiological effects through one of two pathways that involves either Gαq or β-arrestin2,3.
GPR120 has been shown to be ubiquitously expressed and is primarily detected in the intestine, adipocytes, and pro-inflammatory macrophages1,2.
Species reactivity key:
Anti-GPR120/FFAR4 (extracellular) Antibody (#AFR-014) is a highly specific antibody directed against an epitope of the mouse Free fatty acid receptor 4. The antibody can be used in western blot and indirect live cell flow cytometry. It has been designed to recognize FFAR4 from rat, mouse, and human samples.
