mice overexpressing the FABP5 gene encoding E-FABP in adipocytes
Nevertheless, study results suggest that dnmatic compensatory up-regulation of E-FABP
(also called mal1), an otherwise minor form of adipocyte FABP, in adipose tissue of A-FABP-null mice might lead to underestimation of phenotypic changes (42).
