  • The Hydroxycarboxylic acid receptor 2 (HCA2), also known as the niacin receptor or GPR109A, is a prototypical G protein-coupled receptor that plays a central role in the inhibition of lipolytic and atherogenic activities in our body. Interestingly, GPR109A activation also results in vasodilation that is linked to the side-effect of flushing associated with dyslipidemia drugs such as niacin. This receptor continues to be a key target for developing n...
