Gene: FABP4 (fatty acid binding protein 4) Homo sapiens
Symbol: FABP4
Name: fatty acid binding protein 4
Description: Predicted to have long-chain fatty acid binding activity and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in long-chain fatty acid transport and positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Localizes to the extracellular exosome.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: A-FABP; adipocyte lipid-binding protein; adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein; AFABP; ALBP; aP2; epididymis secretory protein Li 104; fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte; fatty acid-binding protein 4; fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte; HEL-S-104
