GPR84 (G Protein-Coupled Receptor 84) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and GPCRs, Other. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is HRH2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for GPR84 Gene
Receptor for medium-chain free fatty acid (FFA) with carbon chain lengths of C9 to C14. Capric acid (C10:0), undecanoic acid (C11:0) and lauric acid (C12:0) are the most potent agonists. Not activated by short-chain and long-chain saturated and unsaturated FFAs. Activation by medium-chain free fatty acid is coupled to a pertussis toxin sensitive G(i/o) protein pathway. May have important roles in processes from fatty acid metabolism to regulation of the immune system.
