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 and transport LCFA. Identifying the postulated fatty acid transporters is of considerable interest since altered fatty acid uptake has been implicated in disease such as insulin resistance and obesity. Recently, a family of membrane associated proteins, termed fatty acid transport proteins (FATPs… CONTINUE READING
