From the authors: “In conclusion, our study is the first to propose a role for [G protein-coupled receptor] 39 in microvascular regulation, in part by sensing the relative concentrations of 14,15-[epoxyeicosatrienoates] and 15-[hydroxyeicosatetraenoates].”

This study is highlighted as one of June’s “best of the best” as part of the American Physiological Society's APSselect program.
