Anti-mouse FABP4 Antibody, Rabbit pAb
Polyclonal Antibody against Mouse FABP4
Application: WB, IP
Size: 0.1 mg
Fatty-acid binding protein 4 (FABP4), also termed adipocyte fatty-acid binding protein (A-FABP), or aP2, is a novel adipocyte-expressed factor which accounted for ~6% of total cellular proteins. Several animal experiments suggested that FABP4 plays a key role in the link between obesity and various features of metabolic syndrome. Mice with targeted disruption of FABP4 accompany FABP5 almost completely to protect against diet-induced obesity, insulin resistance, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, and fatty liver disease. Studies in human found FABP4 serum levels were significantly increased in overweight and obese subjects, which predicted the risk to develop metabolic syndrome and type 2 diabetes. Additionally, serum FABP4 levels were associated with carotid atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease.
Recombinant full-length mouse FABP4 expressed in E.coli.
The antibody detects mouse FABP4.
Liquid in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS).
Store at –20°C for less than one week. For long-term storage, aliquot and freeze at -70°C. Avoid repeated freeze/defrost cycles.
Western blot - This antibody can be used at 0.5-1 μg/mL with the appropriate secondary reagents to detect mouse FABP4.
Rabbit crude IgG was purified by protein-G column.
