Long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) are not only important metabolites but contribute to many cellular functions including activation of protein kinase C (PKC) isoforms and nuclear transcription factors such as peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (PPAPs). To assert their diverse effects LCFAs have first to traverse the plasma membrane, a process that can occur either through diffusion or be mediated by proteins. Considerable evidence has accumulated to show that in addition to a diffusional… Expand

TLDR
Modulation of fatty acid transport protein function can result in altered energyHomeostasis and insulin sensitivity, defective skin homeostasis, and altered bile acid metabolism. Expand
Fatty acid transport across cell membranes Slc43a3 is a regulator of free fatty acid uptake and efflux
Adipocytes take up long chain fatty acids through diffusion and through a low capacity protein mediated transport system on the plasma membrane, whereas fatty acid efflux is considered to occur byExpand
Transport of fatty acids across the human placenta: a review.
  • A. Duttaroy

TLDR
This review summarizes recent developments on placental fatty acid transport and metabolisms, and the regulatory roles of these proteins in these processes. Expand
Role of FATP in parenchymal cell fatty acid uptake.
Long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs) represent key metabolites for energy generation and storage. Transport and metabolism of LCFA are believed to be regulated by membrane-associated proteins that bind andExpand
Targeting the fatty acid transport proteins (FATP) to understand the mechanisms linking fatty acid transport to metabolism.
TLDR
The current understanding of vectorial acylation and the contributions by specific FATP and Acsl isoforms are reviewed and the identification of small molecule inhibitors from high throughput screens that inhibit this process are reviewed to provide new insights into the underlying mechanistic basis of this process. Expand
Comparative Biochemical Studies of the Murine Fatty Acid Transport Proteins (FATP) Expressed in Yeast*
TLDR
Six murine FATP proteins were expressed and characterized in a genetically defined yeast strain and data support the conclusion that the different mmFATP isoforms play unique roles in fatty acid trafficking, including the transport of exogenous long-chain fatty acids. Expand
Evidence for concerted action of FAT/CD36 and FABPpm to increase fatty acid transport across the plasma membrane.
TLDR
It appears based on a number of experiments that FAT/CD36 and FABPpm may collaborate to increase the rates of fatty acid transport, as these proteins co-immunoprecipitate. Expand
Fatty Acid Transport Proteins: Targeting FATP2 as a Gatekeeper Involved in the Transport of Exogenous Fatty Acids.
The fatty acid transport proteins (FATP) are classified as members of the Solute Carrier 27 (Slc27) family of proteins based on their ability to function in the transport of exogenous fatty acids.Expand
Enterocyte Fatty Acid Handling Proteins and Chylomicron Formation
TLDR
The regulation of enterocyte fatty acid transport and the functions in absorption of lipid transporters, scavenger receptor B1, CD36 or SR-B2, and fatty acid Transport protein 4 (FATP4) are discussed. Expand

TLDR
The identification of four novel murine FATPs will allow a better understanding of the mechanisms whereby LCFAs traverse the lipid bilayer as well as yield insight into the control of energy homeostasis and its dysregulation in diseases such as diabetes and obesity. Expand
Characterization of a Heart-specific Fatty Acid Transport Protein*
TLDR
The cloning, expression pattern, and subcellular localization of a novel member of the fatty acid transport protein (FATP) family termed FATP6 are reported, suggesting that FATP 6 is involved in heart LCFA uptake, in which it may play a role in the pathogenesis of lipid-related cardiac disorders. Expand
Localization of adipocyte long-chain fatty acyl-CoA synthetase at the plasma membrane.
TLDR
It is demonstrated for the first time that FACS is an integral membrane protein and a model in which imported LCFAs are immediately esterified at the plasma membrane upon uptake, and in which FATP and FACS function coordinately to facilitate LCFA movement across the plasma membranes of mammalian cells is supported.

Fatty acid transport proteins: a current view of a growing family
TLDR
The current understanding of the function, expression patterns and regulation and subcellular localization of this interesting family of proteins is reviewed. Expand
Membrane transport of long-chain fatty acids: evidence for a facilitated process.

This review summarizes the body of work that has accumulated related to the mechanism of fatty acid transport and evidence in support of a facilitated uptake process is presented with relation to the different cell types or membrane systems where it was collected. Expand
Identification of the major intestinal fatty acid transport protein.
TLDR
It is shown that FATP4, a member of a large family of FA transport proteins (FATPs), is expressed at high levels on the apical side of mature enterocytes in the small intestine and may constitute a novel target for antiobesity therapy. Expand

TLDR
The inhibition of uptake of fatty acid but not of glucose by the antibody to MFABP indicated the physiologic significance of this protein as transmembrane carrier in the cellular uptake process of fatty acids. Expand
Regulation of fatty acid transport protein and fatty acid translocase mRNA levels by endotoxin and cytokines.

The results demonstrate that LPS decreased FATP and FAT mRNA expression in adipose tissue, heart, skeletal muscle, brain, spleen, and kidney, tissues in which FA uptake and/or oxidation is decreased during sepsis. Expand
