Technical Data
Fatty Acid Binding Protein 8 (FABP8, M [myelin]FABP, P2, PMP2)
FABP8 is a 15kD (predicted) member of the fatty acid binding protein family, calycin superfamily of molecules. It is found in Schwann cells, presumably on the cytoplasmic face of the plasma membrane where it may contribute to fatty acid transport across myelin. Functionally, FABP8 has a high affinity for U-shaped fatty acids such as oleic and palmitic acid. Human FABP8 is 132aa in length and exhibits two layers of antiparallel b-strands that envelope a hydrophobic pocket for lipid binding. Arg107 plus Arg127-Ile128-Tyr129 participate in fatty acid binding. Full length human FABP8 shares 87-95aa identity with mouse and rabbit FABP9, respectively.

Suitable for use in Western Blot and Immunohistochemistry. Other applications not tested.
