|Calculated MW||H=14;M=14 KDa|
|Other Names||Fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte, Adipocyte lipid-binding protein, ALBP, Adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein, A-FABP, AFABP, Fatty acid-binding protein 4, FABP4|
|Target/Specificity||Purified His-tagged FABP4 protein was used to produced this monoclonal antibody.|
|Format||Purified monoclonal antibody supplied in PBS with 0.09% (W/V) sodium azide. This antibody is purified through a protein G column, followed by dialysis against PBS.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 2 weeks. For long term storage store at -20°C in small aliquots to prevent freeze-thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||FABP4 Antibody is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Lipid transport protein in adipocytes. Binds both long chain fatty acids and retinoic acid. Delivers long-chain fatty acids and retinoic acid to their cognate receptors in the nucleus (By similarity).|
|Cellular Location||Cytoplasm. Nucleus. Note=Depending on the nature of the ligand, a conformation change exposes a nuclear localization motif and the protein is transported into the nucleus. Subject to constitutive nuclear export (By similarity)|
