GPR120 Compound A
GPR120 Compound A is an orally active and high-affinity agonist of GPR120 .
G-protein coupled receptor 120 (GPR120, free fatty acid receptor 4/FFAR4) is a G protein-coupled receptor which has been expressed in intestine, adipocytes, and pro-inflammatory macrophages that is activated by long chain free fatty acids. GPR120 has been involved in mediating the anti-inflammatory and insulin-sensitizing effects of omega 3 fatty acids. Deficiency of GPR120 is responsible for reduced fat metabolism, produce anti-inflammatory effects and to acutely potentiate insulin secretion .
GPR120 compound A activated GPR120 with the EC50 value of ~0.35 μM. GPR120 compound A demonstrated potent selectivity over another lipid-sensing G-protein, GPR40 (FFAR1). In a high-fat diet fed obese mice, GPR120 compound A (30 mg/kg) exerted anti-inflammatory effects on macrophages in vitro and improved glucose tolerance, decreased hyperinsulinemia, increased insulin sensitivity, and decreased hepatic steatosis .
