Target: FFA4/GPR120

IC50: N/A

AH7614 is a selective and potent free fatty acid receptor 4 (FFA4/GPR120) antagonist with pIC50 values of 7.1, 8.1 and 8.1 at the human, mouse and rat receptor, respectively [1]. The free fatty acid receptor 4 (FFA4/GPR120), a member of the G protein-coupled receptor family, is a potential 7TM receptor involved in long-chain fatty acid-stimulated glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) secretion. FFA4 is highly expressed in the intestinal endocrine cell line STC-1 and the intestine. GLP-1 regulates multiple physiological functions including eating behavior [2].

In vitro: AH7614 (0.063, 0.25, and 1μM) blocked linoleic acid and GSK137647A-induced intracellular calcium increase in U2OS osteosarcoma cells expressing the FFA4 receptor [1]. In addition, the increase of glucose-stimulated insulin secretion by GSK137647A (50 μM) was abolished in the presence of the selective FFA4 antagonist AH7614 (100 μM) in the MIN6 mouse insulinoma cell line. Moreover, AH7614 (100 μM) blocked GSK137647A (100μM)-mediated a modest increase of GLP-1 secretion in the NCIH716 cells [1].

Cell experiment [1]:

Cell lines

Flp-In T-REx 293 cells

Preparation method

The solubility of this compound in DMSO is >10 mM. General tips for obtaining a higher concentration: Please warm the tube at 37℃ for 10 minutes and/or shake it in the ultrasonic bath for a while. Stock solution can be stored below -20℃ for several months.

Reacting condition

AH-7614 inhibited, in a potent and concentration-dependent manner, the ability of ω-3 fatty acid aLA to promote Ca2+ mobilization in Flp-In T-REx 293 cells induced to express hFFA4-eYFP. As an antagonist of FFA4, AH-7614 is able to block effects of both the polyunsaturated ω-6 fatty acid linoleic acid
