Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor activity; fatty acid binding activity; and taste receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cell differentiation; positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; and regulation of peptide secretion. Localizes to cilium; endocytic vesicle; and plasma membrane. Is expressed in brown fat; intestine; and liver. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human FFAR4 (free fatty acid receptor 4).
