  • FunctionFABP 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.
  • Tissue specificityExpressed in the small intestine and at much lower levels in the large intestine. Highest expression levels in the jejunum.
  • 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.
  • Cellular localizationCytoplasm.
