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). FABP’s have a widespread tissue distribution. FABPs are quite abundant (3-5% of total cellular protein). At least 7 FABPs, FABP1-7, have been cloned and characterized from various tissues. FABPs can bind long-chain fatty acid, fatty-acid acyl-CoA and acyl-L-carnitine. Several different isoforms of FABP have been identified. These isoforms are generally referred to by tissue type (liver, heart, intestine, adipocyte, kidney, brain, etc. For example, protein designated as H-FABP indicates that it is heart type). Expression of these isoforms is not exclusive. More than one isoform can be found in a given cell or tissue. Three main types of FABPs that were initially discovered in the heart (FABP-H), liver (FABP-L), and intestine (FABP-I) are not exclusive to these tissues and show considerable differences at the amino acid level (~30% identity). Other FABPs detected in adipocyte, kidney, and brain show a high degree of sequence homology among each other and with other FABPs.
