Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein, Intestinal (I-FABP), Recombinant, Human
Molecular Biology Storage: -20CShipping: Blue Ice
Recombinant L-FABP comprises a 132 amino acid fragment (1-132) corresponding to the human intestinal 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. I-FABP (or FABP-2) is found predominantly in the intestine and is believed to be involved in the intestinal absorption of long chain fatty acids.

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.
