The Quantikine Mouse/Rat FABP1 immunoassay is a 4.5 hour solid-phase ELISA designed to measure FABP1 in mouse or rat cell culture supernates, serum, plasma, and urine. It contains E. coli-expressed recombinant rat FABP1 and antibodies raised against the recombinant factor. This immunoassay has been shown to accurately quantitate the recombinant rat FABP1. Results obtained using natu...ral mouse or rat FABP1 showed dose response curves that were parallel to the standard curves obtained using the Quantikine kit standards. These results indicate that this kit can be used to determine relative mass values for natural FABP1.
Store the unopened product at 2 - 8 °C. Do not use past expiration date.

Liver-type fatty acid-binding protein
Fatty Acid Binding Protein 1, also known as liver FABP, is a cytoplasmic transporter for long chain fatty acids, oxidized/peroxidized fatty acids, cholesterol, heme, Vitamin K, steroids, acyl CoA, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins. It is expressed by hepatocytes, simple columnar epithelium of the small intestine, and renal proximal tubule epithelium. FABP1 trafficks between the cytosol, peroxisomes, and nucleus. It delivers fatty acid cargo to the transcription factor PPAR alpha, leading to increased production of enzymes involved in the beta-oxidation of fatty acids. FABP1 also plays a role in the formation of prechylomicron vesicles by the endoplasmic reticulum.
