Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein, Epidermal (E-FABP), Recombinant, Human
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant E-FABP comprises a 135 amino acid fragment (1-135) corresponding to the human epidermal FABP protein and is expressed in E. coli with an amino- terminal hexahistidine tag.

Fatty acid binding proteins are a family of small, highly conserved, cytoplasmic proteins (14-15kDa) that bind long chain fatty acids, their CoA derivatives, billiruben, organic anions and other small hydrophobic molecules. E-FABP (or FABP-5) is thought work in conjunction with A-FABP to facilitate fatty acid efflux from adipocytes. E-FABP may also be involved in keratinocyte differentiation.

Suitable for use in ELISA. Other applications not tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 12 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
