Data Sheet

Background: GPR43, or free fatty acid receptor 2 (FFAR2), encodes a deduced 330- amino acid protein with 7 transmembrane domains. GPR43 is expressed by enteroendocrine L cells containing peptide YY in the human large intestine. The receptor binding of short- chain fatty acids potentially provides a molecular link between diet, gastrointestinal bacterial metabolism, and immune and inflammatory responses.

Application: Functional assays
