New neurons are continually produced after birth from neural stem/progenitor cells (NSCs/NPCs) in the hippocampal dentate gyrus (DG). Recent studies have reported that fatty acid binding protein 7 (Fabp7/brain lipid binding protein (BLBP)) is required for the maintenance of embryonic NSCs/NPCs and have identified an association between the Fabp7 gene and behavioral paradigms that correlate with hippocampal functions. However, the specific roles of Fabps in postnatal neurogenesis remain unknown… 
Differential expression and regulatory roles of FABP5 and FABP7 in oligodendrocyte lineage cells
TLDR
FABP7 and FABP5 are differentially expressed in oligodendrocyte lineage cells and regulate their proliferation and/or differentiation, and their involvement in the pathophysiology of demyelinating disorders, neuropsychiatric disorder and glioma is suggested.
Astrocyte fatty acid binding protein‐7 is a marker for neurogenic niches in the rat hippocampus
TLDR
In rat brains, FABP7+ astrocytes were particularly abundant in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus and were frequently close to dividing cells immunoreactive for Ki67 protein, suggesting that regional accumulations of FABp7+ Astrocytes may represent reservoirs of cells having the potential for neurogenesis.
Astrocyte‐expressed FABP7 regulates dendritic morphology and excitatory synaptic function of cortical neurons
TLDR
The results suggest that astrocytic FABP7 is important for dendritic arbor growth, neuronal excitatory synapse formation, and synaptic transmission, and provide new insights linking FABp7, lipid homeostasis, and neuropsychiatric disorders, leading to novel therapeutic interventions.
Effects of FABP7 on functional recovery after spinal cord injury in adult mice.
TLDR
It is indicated that FABP7 could have a neuroprotective role that might be associated with modulation of astrocytes after SCI, and could potentially be a therapeutic target in the treatment of SCI.
NRSF deficiency leads to abnormal postnatal development of dentate gyrus and impairment of progenitors in subgranular zone of hippocampus
TLDR
Results showed that NRSF conditional knockout caused a smaller hippocampus and a thinner granule cell layer (GCL) in mice and revealed thatNRSF could significantly influence the postnatal development of hippocampus, especially the formation of SGZ.
Differential Fatty Acid-Binding Protein Expression in Persistent Radial Glia in the Human and Sheep Subventricular Zone
TLDR
The distribution of FABP is demonstrated in the adult human SVZ and fetal ventricular zone and its expression on persistent radial glia that may be involved in adult neurogenesis is revealed to highlight the species-specific expression profile of F ABPs in the SVZ.
Neural stem cells and adult brain fatty acid metabolism: Lessons from the 3xTg model of Alzheimer's disease
TLDR
The picture that emerges is that the critical NSC quiescence‐to‐activation decision is sensitive to the local levels of specific fatty acids and can be impaired by a disease‐associated shift in brain fatty acid balance.
Conserved molecular signatures of neurogenesis in the hippocampal subgranular zone of rodents and primates
TLDR
A Neurogenesis-related gene network with decreasing postnatal expression that is highly correlated with the declining number of proliferating cells in dentate gyrus over postnatal development is identified, suggesting a conservation of molecular mechanisms underlying developmental and adult neurogenesis in rodents and primates.
Docosahexaenoic Acid has stem cell-specific effects in the SVZ and restores olfactory neurogenesis and function in the aging brain
TLDR
It is demonstrated that an essential dietary fatty acid, Decosahexaenoic acid, (DHA), can enhance stem cell function in vitro and in vivo and can promote the production of neural stem cells, possibly via a non-proliferative mechanism stimulated by EGF receptor activation, and prolongs their viability.

Role of Fabp7, a Downstream Gene of Pax6, in the Maintenance of Neuroepithelial Cells during Early Embryonic Development of the Rat Cortex
TLDR
It is concluded that Fabp7 is a downstream gene of Pax6 transcription factor in the developing rat cortex and essential for maintenance of neuroepithelial cells during early cortical development.
Notch1 Is Required for Maintenance of the Reservoir of Adult Hippocampal Stem Cells
TLDR
The data show that Notch1 signaling is required to maintain a reservoir of undifferentiated cells and ensure continuity of adult hippocampal neurogenesis, but that alternative Notch- and Type-1 NSC-independent pathways compensate in response to physical activity.
Pax6 is required for production and maintenance of progenitor cells in postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis
TLDR
An appropriate dosage of Pax6 is essential for production and maintenance of the GFAP+ early progenitor cells in the postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis.
Arachidonic Acid Drives Postnatal Neurogenesis and Elicits a Beneficial Effect on Prepulse Inhibition, a Biological Trait of Psychiatric Illnesses
TLDR
The potential benefit of ARA in ameliorating PPI deficits relevant to psychiatric disorders is suggested and the effect may be correlated with augmented postnatal neurogenesis.
Impaired Hippocampal Neurogenesis and Vascular Formation in Ephrin‐A5‐Deficient Mice
TLDR
Ephrin‐A5, a ligand for Eph receptor tyrosine kinases, plays multiple roles in both neurogenesis and vascular formation in the adult hippocampus, and plays crucial roles in the establishment and/or maintenance of the brain vascular system, as an essential constituent of the adult neurogenic niche.
Altered emotional behavioral responses in mice lacking brain‐type fatty acid‐binding protein gene
TLDR
Data indicate that B‐FABP is crucially involved in the fear memory and anxiety through its binding with FAs and/or its own direct effects on pertinent metabolism/signaling of FAs.
Topographic differences in adult neurogenesis in the mouse hippocampus: A stereology‐based study using endogenous markers
TLDR
Topographic differences in adult neurogenesis in the mouse hippocampus are examined to suggest that a larger pool of immature granule cells in dorsal hippocampus might be responsible for spatial learning and memory, whereas a smaller pool of radial glia‐like progenitors in ventral hippocampusmight be associated with the susceptibility to affective disorders.
