Differentiation associated lipid binding protein LP2
Epidermal-type fatty acid-binding protein
fatty acid binding protein 5 (psoriasis-associated)
Fatty acid binding protein epidermal
Fatty acid-binding protein 5
Fatty acid-binding protein, epidermal
Keratinocyte lipid binding protein
Psoriasis associated fatty acid binding protein homolog
Psoriasis-associated fatty acid-binding protein homolog
FunctionHigh specificity for fatty acids. Highest affinity for C18 chain length. Decreasing the chain length or introducing double bonds reduces the affinity. May be involved in keratinocyte differentiation.
Tissue specificityKeratinocytes; highly expressed in psoriatic skin.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
DomainForms a beta-barrel structure that accommodates the hydrophobic ligand in its interior.
