Data Sheet

Background: The G protein-coupled bile acid receptor GPBAR1 (or GPR131) mediates bile acids-induced rapid elevation of intracellular cAMP levels. It is implicated in the suppression of macrophage functions and regulation of energy homeostasis by bile acids.

Application: Functional assays
