  • Function

    Receptor for medium and long-chain free fatty acid (FAA). Signals via a G(q)/G(11)-coupled pathway. Acts as a receptor for omega-3 fatty acids and mediates robust anti-inflammatory effects particulary in macrophages and fat cells. The anti-inflammatory effects involve inhibition of TAK1 through a beta-arrestin 2 (ARRB2)/TAB1 dependent effect but independent of G(q)/G(11)-coupled pathway. Mediates potent insulin sensitizing and antidiabetic effects by repressing macrophage-induced tissue inflammation. May mediates the taste of fatty acids.
  • Tissue specificity

    Abundant expression in the intestinal tract.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the G-protein coupled receptor 1 family.
  • Post-translational

    Phosphorylated. FFA stimulation facilitates phosphorylation.
  • Cellular localization

    Cell membrane. Colocalized with ARRB2 following DHA treatment.
