Antagonists of GPR142 are candidate future obesity drugs. Anti-sense knockdown of G-protein coupled receptor gene products the loss of function previously determined to cause decrease in fat content [12]. Incubation with the stable beta-adrenergic agonist isoproterenol is shown as a positive control causing increased lipolysis for comparison.
