      Receptors

      • Receptor: PPARgamma1

        • PPARγ1 had the broadest tissue expression(...)PPARγ1 mRNA was found in the heart, large and small intestines, colon, kidney, pancreas, spleen and skeletal muscle. [2]
      • Receptor: CaSR

      • Receptor: EP4

      • Receptor: frizzled 2

      • Receptor: LXR-alpha

      • Receptor: PPAR beta/delta

        • A study with human tissues showed that PPARä was present in liver, intestine, kidney, abdominal adipose, and skeletal muscle, tissues that are all involved in aspects of lipid metabolism [2]
