Target

  • 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.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
  • Domain

    Forms a beta-barrel structure that accommodates hydrophobic ligands in its interior.
  • Cellular localization

    Cytoplasm. Nucleus. 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.

Images

  • IHC image of FABP4 staining in a section of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded normal human breast*, performed on a Leica BOND™. The section was pre-treated using heat mediated antigen retrieval with sodium citrate buffer (pH6, epitope retrieval solution 1) for 20mins. The section was then incubated with ab216528, 1/50 dilution, for 15 mins at room temperature. DAB was used as the chromogen. The section was then counterstained with haematoxylin and mounted with DPX. The inset negative control image is taken from an identical assay without primary antibody.

    For other IHC staining systems (automated and non-automated) customers should optimize variable parameters such as antigen retrieval conditions, primary antibody concentration and antibody incubation times.

    This blot was produced using a 4-12% Bis-tris gel under the MES buffer system. The gel was run at 200V for 35 minutes before being transferred onto a Nitrocellulose membrane at 30V for 70 minutes. The membrane was then blocked for an hour using 2% Bovine Serum Albumin before being incubated with ab216528 overnight at 4°C. Antibody binding was visualised using ECL development solution ab133406.
