Summaries for FABP4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FABP4 Gene

  • FABP4 encodes the 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. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for FABP4 Gene

FABP4 (Fatty Acid Binding Protein 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FABP4 include coronary restenosis and cerebellar liponeurocytoma. Among its related pathways are Lipoprotein metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include transporter activity and fatty acid binding. An important paralog of this gene is FABP3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FABP4 Gene

  • 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).
