FABP3

A gene on chromosome 1p33-p32 that encodes a fatty acid-binding protein thought to play a role in the intracellular transport of long-chain fatty acids and their acyl-CoA esters. FABP3 plays a role in arresting growth of mammary epithelial cells and is a candidate tumour suppressor gene for breast cancer.

In this study, the serum level of H-FABP, a cardiac-specific marker, was measured in pediatric and adolescent patients presenting with ketoacidosis and ketosis.
As the FAST score requires measurement of h-FABP, a biomarker of myocardial injury, which is not routinely available in the majority of hospitals, h-FABP was replaced by hsTnT.
As shown in Figures 3(a) and 3(b), cardiac biomarkers such as BNP and H-FABP were significantly increased with an increasing percentile of AST/ALT ratio.
The present study was planned to determine the value of bedside H-FABP in diagnosis of cardiac syncope in patients presenting to ED with syncope or near-syncope.
In total, 30 male and 30 female chickens from each group were slaughtered through avascularization at 30, 60, 90, and 120 d with the same interval, which could display more clear temporal and spatial mRNA expression patterns of H-FABP, and IMF content trends.
Doctors are beginning to see H-FABP as a means of "ruling out heart attack" when a patient complains of chest pain.
In human diabetes there was a clear independent association between uCTGF and distal tubular damage marker H-FABP, suggesting increased CTGF secretion by the distal nephron.
So far, a number of prior trials have indicated that H-FABP from early blood samplespredicts outcome in acute PE.
