Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor activity; fatty acid binding activity; and taste receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including fat cell differentiation; positive regulation of ERK1 and ERK2 cascade; and positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Localizes to the endocytic vesicle and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human FFAR4 (free fatty acid receptor 4).
