|Other Names||Fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte, Adipocyte lipid-binding protein, ALBP, Adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein, A-FABP, AFABP, Fatty acid-binding protein 4, FABP4|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP2764a was selected from the N-term region of human FABP4. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Lipid transport protein in adipocytes. Binds both long chain fatty acids and retinoic acid. Delivers long-chain fatty acids and retinoic acid to their cognate receptors in the nucleus (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Depending on the nature of the ligand, a conformation change exposes a nuclear localization motif and the protein is transported into the nucleus. Subject to constitutive nuclear export (By similarity)|

FABP4 is a fatty acid binding protein found in adipocytes. Fatty acid binding proteins are a family of small, highly conserved, cytoplasmic proteins that bind long-chain fatty acids and other hydrophobic ligands. It is thought that FABPs roles include fatty acid uptake, transport, and metabolism.
