Abstract: AbstractBrown adipose tissue (BAT) activation stimulates energy expenditure in human adults, which makes it an attractive target to combat obesity and related disorders. Recent studies demonstrated a role for G protein‐coupled receptor 120 (GPR120) in BAT thermogenesis. Here, we investigated the therapeutic potential of GPR120 agonism and addressed GPR120‐mediated signaling in BAT. We found that activation of GPR120 by the selective agonist TUG‐891 acutely increases fat oxidation and reduces body weight and fa…
