Gene: Fabp4 (fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fabp4
Name: fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte
Description: Exhibits hormone receptor binding activity; long-chain fatty acid binding activity; and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including brown fat cell differentiation; cellular response to lithium ion; and negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; central nervous system; genitourinary system; gut; and heart. Orthologous to human FABP4 (fatty acid binding protein 4); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1,4-bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfosuccinate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
