LinkLight™ U2-OS GPR109A / β-arrestin Cell Line is a transiently transfected cell line in U2-OS cells, targeting Human GPR109A pathway via b-arrestin. The proprietary LinkLight™ technology uses a standard Luciferase Assay as the detection method.
GPR109A acts as a receptor for both niacin and (D)-beta-hydroxybutyrate. Secretion of adiponectin increases lipolysis decreases through G(i)-protein-mediated inhibition of adenylyl cyclase, requiring levels of niacin that are much higher than those provided by a normal diet. It also levels niacin-induced apoptosis in mature neutrophils.

Standard Luciferase Assay System for mammalian cells should be followed according to Assay kit manufacturer protocol.
