Background: GPR120 is a G protein-coupled receptor for the long-chain free fatty acids. GPR120 mediated calcium mobilization, Erk1/Erk2 activation and GLP1 secretion. Unsaturated long-chain FFAs had a dose-dependent stimulatory effect, and α-linolenic acid was the most potent. GPR120 and GLP1 colocalized in human colonic intraepithelial neuroendocrine cells, and GPR120 may mediate dietary FFA-stimulated GLP1 secretion.
Application: Functional assays
