FABP2

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.

Diamine oxidase (DAO) (Cloud-Clone Crop, USA), D-lactic acid (D-LA) (Biosamite, USA), and intestinal-type fatty acid-binding protein (FABP2) (Cloud-Clone Crop, USA) in serum were measured according to the manufacturer's instructions of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) kits as previously described [20].
In addition, Lipoxin A4 binding to ALXR could also reduce damage of diamine oxidase (DAO) products, D-lactic acid (DLA), and intestinal-type fatty acid-binding protein (FABP2) release with other mechanisms.
