Background: Human GPR84 is a G protein-coupled receptor with 396 amino acids. The hgpr84 transcript was found in brain, heart, muscle, colon, thymus, spleen, kidney, liver, intestine, placenta, lung and leukocytes. A study in GPR84-deficient mice revealed a novel role for GPR84 in regulating early IL-4 gene expression in activated T cells in response to CD3 crosslinking.
Application: Functional assays
