Recombinant Fatty Acid Binding Protein (Liver) / FABP1 [FABP1/8521R]
Fatty acid-binding proteins, designated FABPs, are a family of homologous cytoplasmic proteins that are expressed in a highly tissue-specific manner and play an integral role in the balance between lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. FABPs mediate fatty acid (FA) and/or hydrophobic ligand uptake, transport and targeting within their respective tissues. The mechanisms underlying these actions can give rise to both passive diffusional uptake and protein-mediated transmembrane transport of FAs. FABPs are expressed in adipocytes (A-FABP), brain (B-FABP), epithelium (E-FABP, psoriasis-associated FABP, PA-FABP), striated muscle and heart (H-FABP, mammary-derived growth inhibitor or MDGI), intestine (I-FABP), liver (L-FABP or FABP1), myelin (M-FABP) and testis (T-FABP). FABP1 (L-FABP) expression is modulated by developmental, hormonal, dietary and pharmacological factors, and is required for cholesterol synthesis and metabolism.
- Plays a role in lipoprotein-mediated cholesterol uptake in hepatocytes (PubMed:25732850). Binds cholesterol (PubMed:25732850). Binds free fatty acids and their coenzyme A derivatives, bilirubin, and some other small molecules in the cytoplasm. May be involved in intracellular lipid transport (By similarity).
Known Applications & Suggested Dilutions
- Immunohistochemistry (Formalin-fixed) (1-2ug/ml for 30 minutes at RT),(Staining of formalin-fixed tissues requires heating tissue sections in 10mM Tris with 1mM EDTA, pH 9.0, for 45 min at 95°C followed by cooling at RT for 20 minutes),Optimal dilution for a specific application should be determined.
