FABP2 Human Recombinant produced in E.Coli is a single, non-glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 131 amino acids and having a molecular mass of 15.1kDa.The FABP2 is purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques.
FABP multigene family has almost 20 known members. FABPs are divided into 3 different types: hepatic, intestinal and cardiac which form 14-15 kDa proteins that take part in the uptake, intracellular metabolism and/or transport of long-chain fatty acids. FABPs are involved in the modulation of cell growth and proliferation. Intestinal FABP (FABP2) gene has a polymorphism at codon 54 that identified an alanine-encoding allele and a threonine-encoding allele. Thr-54 protein is associated with increased fat oxidation and insulin resistance. High serum levels of FABP2 is ulcerative colitis indicates ileitis. FABP2 is has part in triglyceride-rich lipoprotein synthesis. FABP2 binds saturated long-chain fatty acids with a high affinity, but binds with a lower affinity to unsaturated long- chain fatty acids. FABP2 helps maintain energy homeostasis by functioning as a lipid sensor.

Sterile Filtered White lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.
FABP2 was lyophilized from a 0.2
It is recommended to reconstitute the lyophilized Interleukin FABP2 in sterile 18M-cm H2O not less than 100
Lyophilized FABP2 althoµgh stable at room temperature for 3 weeks, should be stored desiccated below -18°C. Upon reconstitution FABP2 should be stored at 4°C between 2-7 days and for future use below -18°C.For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).Please prevent freeze-thaw cycles.
