  • Product Description

    Oh et al (2010) demonstrated that Omega-3 fatty acid administration to obese mice inhibited inflammation and enhanced insulin sensitivity, but these effects were absent in GPR120 knockout mice. GPR120 agonists may prove to be useful in suppression of chronic inflammation seen in obesity, which could reduce insulin resistance and help restore glucose control. A recent review suggests that the effects of marine n-3 fatty acids on inflammatory markers studied in healthy subjects, those at high risk for developing Cardiovascular Disease, and those with diagnosed Cardiovascular Disease are as yet not conclusive (Myhrstad et al. 2011). Eurofins' cloned human GPR120 receptor-expressing ChemiBrite cells were made by stable transfection of HEK293 cells with ChemiBrite clytin and the GPR120 receptor. These stability-tested cells are ready for luminescent analysis of agonists, antagonists and modulators at the GPR120 receptor.
