Human GPR120 Free Fatty Acid Receptor Cell Line

GPR120 is a member of the free fatty acid G protein-coupled receptor family that includes GPR40, GPR41 and GPR43, and is activated by unsaturated long chain free fatty acids (Hirasawa et al., 2005). Expression analysis shows that GPR120 is abundantly expressed in intestine. Stimulation of GPR120 by free fatty acids has been shown to promote the secretion of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and activate the ERK cascade (Hirasawa et al., 2005). More recently, Katsuma et al. showed that activation of GPR120 by free fatty acids such as linolenic acid inhibits apoptosis of a murine enteroendocrine cell line.
