Mechanism of fluorescent fatty acid transfer from adipocyte fatty acid binding protein to membranes.

Adipocyte fatty acid binding protein (A-FABP) is a 15-kDa protein found in high abundance in the cytosol of adipose cells. To better understand the role of this protein in intracellular free fatty acid (ffa) transport, the mechanism of ffa transfer from A-FABP to model membranes was examined by monitoring the transfer of fluorescent anthroyloxy ffa (AOffa… CONTINUE READING
