Heart contains a fatty acid binding protein (FABP) concentration comparable to liver, when it is determined with a fatty acid-binding assay. The low concentration detected with anti-liver FABP antibodies is related to the different chemical forms and physiochemical properties of liver and heart FABP. The ratio of fatty acid bound per purified protein molecule is one or lower. Rat heart mitochondria oxidize FABP-bound fatty acids. The FABP content of rat heart is dependent on sex and diurnal… CONTINUE READING
