Human Recombinant Free Fatty Acid Receptor 1 Stable Cell Line
Free fatty acid G protein coupled receptor family consists of four members and plays significant roles in nutrition regulation. GPR40 and GPR120 are activated by medium and long-chain FFAs, whereas GPR41 and GPR43 can be activated by short-chain FFAs. GPR40 is preferentially expressed in pancreatic beta-cells and mediates the majority of the effects of FFAs on insulin secretion. Researches show that GPR40 is a potential therapeutic target and plays an important role in the chain of events linking obesity and type2 diabetes.
