Gene: Ffar4 (free fatty acid receptor 4) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ffar4
Name: free fatty acid receptor 4
Description: Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor activity; fatty acid binding activity; and taste receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade; positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis; and regulation of glucose transmembrane transport. Localizes to the endocytic vesicle and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human FFAR4 (free fatty acid receptor 4); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; carbon nanotube.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
