Gene: Fabp3 (fatty acid binding protein 3) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fabp3
Name: fatty acid binding protein 3
Description: Exhibits icosatetraenoic acid binding activity and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including long-chain fatty acid transport; response to fatty acid; and response to insulin. Localizes to cytosol and sarcoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human FABP3 (fatty acid binding protein 3); PARTICIPATES IN integrin mediated signaling pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH (R)-adrenaline; (R)-carnitine; 11-deoxycorticosterone.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Fatty acid binding protein 3 heart; Fatty acid binding protein 3 muscle and heart; Fatty acid binding protein 3, heart; fatty acid binding protein 3, muscle and heart; fatty acid-binding protein 3; fatty acid-binding protein, heart; H-FABP; heart fatty acid binding protein; heart-type fatty acid-binding protein
