Human FABP4/A-FABP Antibody Summary

Species Reactivity
Human
Specificity
Detects human FABP4/A‑FABP in direct ELISAs and Western blots. In direct ELISAs, approximately 60% cross-reactivity with recombinant mouse (rm) FABP4 is observed, approximately 30% cross‑reactivity with recombinant human (rh) FABP3 is observed, and less than 5% cross‑reactivity with rhFABP1, -2, -5, -6, -7, -8, -9, and rmFABP9 is observed.

Data Examples

Western Blot Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat FABP4/A‑FABP by Western Blot. View Larger

Detection of Human, Mouse, and Rat FABP4/A‑FABP by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human heart tissue, rat heart tissue, mouse heart tissue, human adipose tissue, rat adipose tissue, and mouse adipose tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 1 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human FABP4/A‑FABP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3150) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF019). A specific band was detected for FABP4/A‑FABP at approximately 14 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Immunohistochemistry FABP4/A‑FABP in Human Bladder Cancer Tissue. View Larger

FABP4/A‑FABP in Human Bladder Cancer Tissue. FABP4/A‑FABP was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human bladder cancer tissue using Goat Anti-Human FABP4/A‑FABP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3150) at 3 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue). Specific staining was localized to cytoplasm.

Simple Western Detection of Human and Mouse FABP4/A‑FABP by Simple WesternTM. View Larger

Detection of Human and Mouse FABP4/A‑FABP by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of human heart tissue and mouse heart tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for FABP4/A‑FABP at approximately 19 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Goat Anti-Human FABP4/A‑FABP Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF3150) followed by 1:50 dilution of HRP-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF109). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the
12-230 kDa separation system.

Background: FABP4/A-FABP

FABP4, also known as adipocyte P2 and A-FABP (adipocyte FABP), is a FABP family member that is expressed in adipocytes and monocyte-derived foam cells. It is a lipid transport protein that binds long chain fatty acid and retinoic acid. Human and mouse FABP4 share 91% amino acid sequence homology.

Long Name
Fatty Acid-Binding Protein 4
Entrez Gene IDs
2167 (Human); 11770 (Mouse); 79451 (Rat)
Alternate Names
Adipocyte lipid-binding protein; Adipocyte-type fatty acid-binding protein; AFABP; A-FABP; A-FABPAFABP; ALBP; aP2; FABP4; fatty acid binding protein 4, adipocyte; Fatty acid-binding protein 4; fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte
