Evidence is provided in this paper that indicates that fatty acids but not phospholipids are removed from microsomes or artificial membranes (liposomes, unilamellar vesicles) by mouse liver cytosolic preparations enriched with fatty acid binding protein (FABP). The cytosolic proteins can act as acceptors for fatty acids but not for phospholipids of microsomal origin. Direct evidence came when liposomes made of egg yolk phosphatidylcholine, containing both [14C]labeled phospholipids and [1-14C… Expand

Fatty acid transfer between multilamellar liposomes and fatty acid-binding proteins.
TLDR
A simple experimental system was developed for studying the movement of long-chain fatty acids between multilamellar liposomes and soluble proteins capable of binding fatty acids, and it was found that the fatty acid transferred from the liposome to either protein rapidly and selectively under conditions where phospholipid and cholesterol transfer did not occur.

The results suggest that fatty acid binding protein may bind cholesterol and its esters in addition to free fatty acids. Expand
A Binding Protein for Fatty Acids in Cytosol of Intestinal Mucosa, Liver, Myocardium, and Other Tissues
TLDR
A protein of molecular weight ∼ 12,000 which binds long-chain fatty acids and certain other lipids has been identified in cytosol of intestinal mucosa, liver, myocardium, adipose tissue, and kidney and appears to be identical with the smaller of two previously described cytoplasmic anion-binding proteins.

TLDR
It is suggested that the stimulation of stearic acid desaturation by fatty acid binding protein may involve a selective removal of the product, oleic acid, from the microsomal membranes. Expand
Binding of lysophosphatidylcholine to the rat liver fatty acid binding protein.
TLDR
The studies suggest that liver fatty acidbinding protein may be involved in the intracellular metabolism of lysoPC as well as fatty acids, and that functional differences may exist between rat liver and heart fatty acid binding protein. Expand
The binding of fatty acids to cytoplasmic proteins: binding to Z protein in liver and other tissues of the rat.
TLDR
A cytoplasmic binding protein (Z protein) has been shown to have a high affinity for fatty acids in rat liver, myocardium, skeletal muscle, intestinal mucosa, adipose tissue and kidney. Expand
Fatty acid binding protein. Isolation from rat liver, characterization, and immunochemical quantification.
TLDR
The abundance of FABP, its importance in the cytosolic binding of endogenous as well as exogenous fatty acids, and its demonstrated correlation with rates of hepatocyte fatty acid utilization provide additional evidence for its relationship to the cellular metabolism of long chain fatty acids. Expand
Utilization of long chain fatty acids by rat liver: studies of the role of fatty acid binding protein.
TLDR
Although its possible role as a fatty acid "carrier" remains uncertain, FABP influences the activity of enzyme reactions in which fatty acid and fatty acid acyl CoA are substrates, is associated with large quantities of endogenous unsaturated fatty acids, and may be important in the utilization of fatty acids formed within the cell, de novo or by ester hydrolysis.

Z protein: isolation and characterization of multiple forms in rat liver cytosol.
TLDR
Z was purified using ammonium sulfate fractionation, gel filtration, and preparative isoelectric focusing to study the possible identity of these proteins and investigate their function. Expand
Lipid transfer proteins.
TLDR
The distribution of lipid transfer proteins, how these proteins have been utilized to study lipid asymmetry in biological and in artificial membranes, and the effect of membrane lipid modification on enzyme activities are reviewed. Expand
