FABP2

A gene on chromosome 4q28-q31 that encodes an intracellular fatty acid-binding protein that binds saturated long-chain fatty acids and is thought to play a role in triglyceride-rich lipoprotein synthesis. FABP2 may also help maintain energy homeostasis by acting as a lipid sensor; it is induced by EGF.
