recombinant N-terminal hexahistidine-tagged protein expressed in E. coli
Fatty acid binding protein 1 (FABP1) is one of nine known cytosolic FABPs ranging in size from 14-15 kDa containing 127-132 amino acids.1 FABP1 is composed of ten antiparallel β strands that form a barrel with a bigger binding pocket than the other FABPs allowing it to accommodate two fatty acids. Expression of FABP1 is decreased in hepatoblastoma and hepatocellular carcinoma making the protein a potential tumor marker. Moreover, studies have suggested FABP1 as a potential biomarker for both liver and kidney injury.1 Cayman’s FABP1 has been functionally characterized by a fluorescence displacement assay using the fluorescent fatty acid analogue 11-(dansyl amino)undecanoic acid (DAUDA). Both arachidonic acid and oleic acid effectively displace DAUDA from the FABP binding pocket in a concentration-dependent manner.

Cayman Chemical was formed over thirty years ago by demonstrating the value of naturally growing gorgonian corals as a renewable, economically viable source of prostaglandins. Today we operate our business knowing that we owe our start to the renewable resources our environment had provided. As Cayman Chemical continues to grow we consistently evaluate our business processes to ensure we are operating at the highest environmental standards.
