Fatty acids are important for general cellular metabolism. A number of proteins have been implicated in the transport and storage of fatty acid. FABPs (fatty acid binding proteins) are a group of cytoplasmic, small mol wt (14-15kD) and proteins that has widespread tissue distribution. FABPs can bind long-chain fatty acid, fatty-acid acyl-CoA and acyl-L-carnitine. Several different isoforms of FABP have been identified and generally referred to by tissue type (liver, heart, intestine, adipocyte, kidney, brain etc; protein designated as H-FABP indicates that it is heart type). However, expression of these isoforms is not exclusive and more than one isoforms can be found in a given cell or tissue. FABPs share significant degree of sequence homology. FABPs are also known as mammary derived growth inhibitor (MDGI), adipocyte lipid binding protein (ALBP), Myelin protein P2 homolog, P2 adipocyte protein, 422 protein (P15).
