Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein, Heart (Heart-type Fatty Acid-binding Protein, H-FABP, Fatty Acid Binding Protein 3, FABP3, FABP11, Mammary-derived Growth Inhibitor, MDGI, Muscle Fatty Acid Binding Protein, M-FABP, O-FABP)
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 to 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), making FABP cardiac-specific cf. myoglobin. This makes 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.

Suitable for use in Immunoaffinity Purification and ELISA. Not suitable for use in Western Blot. Other applications have not been tested.
