FABP is a plasma marker of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The plasma kinetics of FABP (15kD) closely resemble those of myoglobin in that elevated plasma concentrations are found within 2 hours after AMI and return to normal generally within 18-24 hours. The concentration of FABP in the skeletal muscle is 20 times lower than in cardiac tissue (for myoglobin the same content for cardiac and skeletal tissue), that makes FABP to be cardiac specific than myoglobin. FABP a useful biochemical marker for the early assessment or exclusion of AMI. FABP also appears a useful plasma marker for the estimation of myocardial infarct size.
