Fatty acid-binding proteins belong to a superfamily of lipid-binding proteins that exhibit a high affinity for long-chain fatty acids and appear to function in metabolism and intracellular transportation of lipids. The current study was designed to investigate expression characterization and association with growth and composition traits of the liver fatty acid-binding protein (L-FABP) gene in the chicken. Northern blot analysis indicated that the gene, similar to the mammal L-FABP gene, was… CONTINUE READING
