Official Full Name
fatty acid binding protein 6, ileal
This gene encodes the ileal fatty acid binding protein. Fatty acid binding proteins are a family of small, highly;conserved, cytoplasmic proteins that bind long-chain fatty acids and other hydrophobic ligands. FABP6 and FABP1 (the;liver fatty acid binding protein) are also able to bind bile acids. It is thought that FABPs roles include fatty acid;uptake, transport, and metabolism. Transcript variants generated by alternate transcription promoters and/or alternate;splicing have been found for this gene.
