Epidermal Fatty Acid Binding Protein (FABP5, Fatty acid-binding protein epidermal, Epidermal-type fatty acid-binding protein, E-FABP, Fatty acid-binding protein 5, Psoriasis-associated fatty acid-binding protein homolog, PA-FABP)

Human fatty acid binding protein EFABP is a 15 kD member of the intracellular fatty acid binding protein (FABP) family, which is known for the ability to bind fatty acids and related compounds ( bile acids or retinoids). in an internal cavity. The fatty acid binding proteins aP2 (fatty acid binding protein [FABP]-4) and mal1 (EFABP) are closely related and both are expressed in adipocytes. Absence of EFABP/mal1 resulted in increased systemic insulin sensitivity in two models of obesity and insulin resistance. Adipocytes isolated from mal1-deficient mice also exhibited enhanced insulin-stimulated glucose transport capacity. In contrast, mice expressing high levels of mal1 in adipose tissue display reduced systemic insulin sensitivity .
