Gene: Fabp3 (fatty acid binding protein 3, muscle and heart) Mus musculus
Symbol: Fabp3
Name: fatty acid binding protein 3, muscle and heart
Description: Predicted to have cytoskeletal protein binding activity; long-chain fatty acid binding activity; and long-chain fatty acid transporter activity. Involved in several processes, including lipid homeostasis; lipid transport; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FABP3 (fatty acid binding protein 3); PARTICIPATES IN integrin mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
