The fatty acid-binding protein (FABP) superfamily is constituted by 14–15 kDa soluble proteins which bind with a high affinity either long-chain fatty acids (LCFAs), bile acids (BAs) or retinoids. In the small intestine, three different FABP isoforms exhibiting a high affinity for LCFAs and/or BAs are expressed: the intestinal and the liver-type (I-FABP and L-FABP) and the ileal bile acid-binding protein (I-BABP). Despite of extensive investigations, their respective physiological function(s… CONTINUE READING
