FABP1

A gene on chromosome 2p11 that encodes a hepatic fatty acid-binding protein that binds long-chain fatty acids, other hydrophobic ligands and bile acids; it may be involved in intracellular lipid transport.

Among this set, Fabp1 (fatty acid-binding protein), also known as a heme-binding protein (Epstein et al.
Expression of FABP1 was much greater in liver, while FABP3 and FABP4 transcripts were much more abundant in mammary tissues.
It has been observed that human liver-and heart-type FABP (FABP1 and FABP3) are expressed in the proximal and distal renal tubular cells, respectively (14, 15), and increased amounts of FABP1 in urine have been postulated as a clinical marker of renal tubulointerstitial damage (16, 17).
The antibodies in human FABP4 ELISA are highly specific for human FABP4, with no detectable cross-reactivity to human FABP1, FABP2, FABP3, or FABP5.
