Data Sheet

Background: GPR35 is an orphan receptor and expressed in various tissues including stomach, gastrointestinal tissues, and several types of immune cells. Up- regulation of GPR35 has been found in human mast cells upon stimulation with IgE antibodies, human macrophages treated with the environmental contaminant polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon benzo[a]pyrene, failing heart cells, and gastric cancer cells. Known agonists of the orphan receptor GPR35 are kynurenic acid, zaprinast, 5-nitro-2-(3-phenylproplyamino) benzoic acid, and lysophosphatidic acids.

Application: Functional assays
