|Biological Significance||FABP2, also known as intestinal fatty acid binding protein 2 (I-FABP), is expressed in the epithelium of the small intestine by mature enterocytes. FABP2 is thought to facilitate of cellular uptake and transport of long-chain fatty acids within enterocytes and may also help maintain energy homeostasis by functioning as a lipid sensor. This protein binds saturated long-chain fatty acid with a high affinity, but binds with a low affinity to unsaturated long-chain fatty acid. The Ala to Thr substitution at residue 54 of FABP2 is associated with higher total cholesterol, with stroke incidence, elevation of fasting and postprandial triglyceride, insulin resistance, and higher nonesterified fatty acid (NEFA) concentrations. Recombinant human FABP2, fused to His-tag at N-terminus, was expressed in E. coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques.|
