Literature on FABP2

FABP2 [ENSP00000274024]

Intestinal-type fatty acid-binding protein; FABP are thought to play a role in the intracellular transport of long-chain fatty acids and their acyl-CoA esters. FABP2 is probably involved in triglyceride-rich lipoprotein synthesis. Binds saturated long-chain fatty acids with a high affinity, but binds with a lower affinity to unsaturated long- chain fatty acids. FABP2 may also help maintain energy homeostasis by functioning as a lipid sensor; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
