Gene: Fabp2 (fatty acid binding protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fabp2
Name: fatty acid binding protein 2
CRRD ID: 2591
Description: Exhibits long-chain fatty acid binding activity and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Involved in fatty acid metabolic process; intestinal absorption; and long-chain fatty acid transport. Localizes to apical cortex; microvillus; and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcoholic liver cirrhosis; carotid stenosis; coronary artery disease; end stage renal disease; and obesity. Orthologous to human FABP2 (fatty acid binding protein 2); PARTICIPATES IN eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: FABP; FABPI; fatty acid binding protein 1; fatty acid binding protein 2, intestinal; fatty acid-binding protein 2; fatty acid-binding protein, intestinal; I-FABP; intestinal fatty acid binding protein; intestinal-type fatty acid-binding protein
