MA5-15573 targets FABP2 in FACS, IF, IHC, and WB applications and shows reactivity with Human samples.
The MA5-15573 immunogen is purified recombinant fragment of human FABP2 expressed in E. Coli.
MA5-15573 detects FABP2 which has a predicted molecular weight of approximately 15kDa.
The intracellular fatty acid-binding proteins belong to a multigene family with nearly twenty identified members. FABPs are divided into at least three distinct types, namely the hepatic-, intestinal- and cardiac-type. They form 14-15 kDa proteins and are thought to participate in the uptake, intracellular metabolism and/or transport of long-chain fatty acids. They may also be responsible in the modulation of cell growth and proliferation. Intestinal fatty acid-binding protein 2 gene contains four exons and is an abundant cytosolic protein in small intestine epithelial cells. This gene has a polymorphism at codon 54 that identified an alanine-encoding allele and a threonine-encoding allele. Thr-54 protein is associated with increased fat oxidation and insulin resistance.
