About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for FFAR2 Gene:
This gene encodes a member of the GP40 family of G protein-coupled receptors that are clustered together on
chromosome 19. The encoded protein is a receptor for short chain free fatty acids and may be involved in the
inflammatory response and in regulating lipid plasma levels. (provided by RefSeq, Apr 2009)

GeneCards Summary for FFAR2 Gene: 
FFAR2 (free fatty acid receptor 2) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with FFAR2 include colon cancer, and breast cancer, and among its related super-pathways are Class A/1 (Rhodopsin-like receptors) and Signaling by GPCR. GO annotations related to this gene include lipid binding and G-protein coupled receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is FFAR3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: FFAR2_HUMAN, O15552
Function: Receptor for short chain fatty acids through a G(i)-protein-mediated inhibition of adenylyl cyclase and
elevation of intracellular calcium. The rank order of potency for agonists of this receptor is acetate=
propionate = butyrate > pentanoate = formate

summary for FFAR2 Gene:
Free Fatty Acid (FFA) receptors are a group of Gq/11 protein-coupled receptors that are currently divided
into FFA1, FFA2 and FFA3 subtypes. They are concentrated in the pancreatic islet cells (particularly FFA1)
and in the brain, with lower expression levels found in adipose tissue, peripheral blood mononuclear cells,
neutrophils and monocytes. FFA receptors are involved in adenylate cyclase inhibition, phospholipase C
stimulation and cause leptin, insulin and glucagon secretion.
