Data Sheet

Background: The GPR4 is a family of proton-sensing G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and has recently been identified as novel pH sensors. GPR4 sense extracellular protons through histidine residues of the receptors and are coupled to G-proteins to stimulate intracellular signaling pathways. This receptor is expressed in vascular endothelial and smooth muscle cells, as well in a wide range of tissues such as the lung, kidney, heart, and liver. GPR4, upon activation by acidic pH stimulates the Gs/cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) signaling pathway in endothelial cells and regulates micro vessel growth.

Application: Functional assays

Dose- dependent increase of intracellular cAMP level upon treatment with ligand, measured with MultiscreenTM TR-FRET cAMP 1.0 No Wash Assay Kit (Multispan MSCM01). Figure 3. Receptor expression on cell surface measured by flow cytometry (FACS) using an anti- FLAG antibody. Thin line: parental cells; thick line: receptor-expressing cells.
