LinkLight™ U2-OS FFAR1 / β-arrestin Cell Line is a transiently transfected cell line in U2-OS cells, targeting Human FFAR1 pathway via b-arrestin. The proprietary LinkLight™ technology uses a standard Luciferase Assay as the detection method.
FFAR1 is a member of the GP40 family of G protein-coupled receptors found on chromosome 19, and acts as a receptor for medium and long chain free fatty acids and may be involved in the metabolic regulation of insulin secretion. Polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with type 2 diabetes.
