Background
GPR109A (HM74A, PUMA-G or niacin receptor 1) is a high-affinity receptor for nicotinic acid (niacin), and is highly expressed in adipocytes, lung, macrophages, dendritic cells, microglia and neutrophils. GPR109A in adipocytes is likely to be involved in niacinmediated inhibition of lipolysis, reduction of serum free fatty acids and triglycerides as well as elevation of high density lipoproteins. GPR109A also serves important functions in the immune system. GPR109A on Langerhans cells in the skin also mediates niacin-induced cutaneous flushing, one of the major side effects of niacin, via the massive production of prostaglandins PGD2 and PGE2 in a ligand-dependent fashion.
