Western blot analysis of FABP1 over-expressed 293 cell line, cotransfected with FABP1 Validated Chimera RNAi ( Cat # H00002168-R01V ) (Lane 2) or non-transfected control (Lane 1). Blot probed with FABP1 monoclonal antibody (M02), clone 5F7 (Cat # H00002168-M02 ). GAPDH ( 36.1 kDa ) used as specificity and loading control.
FABP1 encodes the fatty acid binding protein found in liver. Fatty acid binding proteins are a family of small, highly conserved, cytoplasmic proteins that bind long-chain fatty acids and other hydrophobic ligands. FABP1 and FABP6 (the ileal fatty acid binding protein) are also able to bind bile acids. It is thought that FABPs roles include fatty acid uptake, transport, and metabolism. [provided by RefSeq
