Human Fatty Epidermal Acid Binding Protein FABP also called FABP-5 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. 


Recombinant Human Epidermal Fatty Acid Binding Protein (FABP-5) is a monomeric, non-glycosylated, polypeptide chain containing 135 amino acids and having a total molecular mass of 15200 Daltons.


Escherichia Coli.

Physical Appearance

Sterile Filtered lyophilized (freeze-dried) powder.


Sterile filtered and lyophilized from 0.5 mg/ml in phosphate buffered saline.


Add 0.2 ml of dH20 and let the lyophilized pellet dissolve completely.


Store lyophilized protein at -20°C. Aliquot the product after reconstitution to avoid freeze-thaw cycles. Reconstituted protein can be stored at 4°C for a limited period of time; it does not show any change after two weeks at 4°C.


Greater than 90% as determined by SDS PAGE.


The amino acid sequence of the recombinant human FABP5 is 100% homologous to the amino acid sequence of the human FABP-5.

Purification Method

Two-step procedure using size exclusion chromatography before and after refolding.
