free fatty acid receptor

CELL BIOLOGY, PHYSIOLOGY 

A cell membrane bound G protein-coupled receptor–e.g., FFAR1, FFAR2, FFAR3, and GPR42, which modulates adenylate cyclase and phospholipase C activity and cause leptin, insulin and glucagon secretion.

Free fatty acid receptors are expressed in islet cells of the pancreas, the brain, adipose tissue, peripheral blood mononuclear cells, neutrophils and monocytes.
