FABP1 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing a total of 147 amino acids (1-127 a.a) and having a molecular mass of 16 kDa. The protein is fused to a 20 a.a His-Tag at N-terminus.The FABP-1 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
FABP1 (Fatty acid binding protein1) encodes the fatty acid binding protein found in liver. FABP1 is composed of ten antiparallel beta strands that form a barrel with a bigger binding pocket than the other FABPs allowing it to accommodate two fatty acid. This protein binds free fatty acids and their coenzyme A derivatives, bilirubin, and some other small molecules in the cytoplasm; it may be involved in intracellular lipid transport and metabolism.
