Functioni

G-protein coupled receptor for medium and long chain saturated and unsaturated fatty acids that plays an important role in glucose homeostasis. Fatty acid binding increases glucose-stimulated insulin secretion, and may also enhance the secretion of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). May also play a role in bone homeostasis; receptor signaling activates pathways that inhibit osteoclast differentiation (By similarity). Ligand binding leads to a conformation change that triggers signaling via G-proteins that activate phospholipase C, leading to an increase of the intracellular calcium concentration. Seems to act through a G(q) and G(i)-mediated pathway.By similarity3 Publications

Enzyme regulationi

The receptor is strongly activated by gamma-linolenic acid, while myristate gives a lower response. It is also activated by phytanic acid and pristanic acid (PubMed:21570468). Is also activated by synthetic agonists, such as TAK-875 (fasiglifam); this compound is a partial agonist and potentiates the activity of the endogenous ligand gamma-linolenic acid (PubMed:24130766).2 Publications
