Gene: Fabp4 (fatty acid binding protein 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fabp4
Name: fatty acid binding protein 4
Description: Predicted to have hormone receptor binding activity; long-chain fatty acid binding activity; and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and response to glucocorticoid. Localizes to cytosol. Biomarker of impotence. Orthologous to human FABP4 (fatty acid binding protein 4); PARTICIPATES IN eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: A-FABP; adipocyte lipid-binding protein; adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein; AFABP; Albp; aP2; fatty acid binding protein 4 adipocyte; fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte; fatty acid-binding protein 4; fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte
