free fatty acid receptor 4

Gene Summary

Enables G protein-coupled receptor activity; fatty acid binding activity; and taste receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including brown fat cell differentiation; positive regulation of cell communication; and positive regulation of cell differentiation. Acts upstream of or within G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway and hormone secretion. Located in cilium; endocytic vesicle; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in brown fat; intestine; and liver. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human FFAR4 (free fatty acid receptor 4).
