Immunohistochemistry (Paraffin) Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected BLBP/FABP7 in human brain tissue sections.

Immunofluorescence Analysis: A 1:100 dilution from a representative lot detected BLBP/FABP7 in human cerebellum tissue sections.

Note: Actual optimal working dilutions must be determined by end user as specimens, and experimental conditions may vary with the end user.

Target description

Fatty acid-binding protein, brain (UniProt: O15540; also known as Brain lipid-binding protein, BLBP, Brain-type fatty acid-binding protein, B-FABP, Fatty acid-binding protein 7, Mammary-derived growth inhibitor related) is encoded by the FABP7 (also known as BLBP, FABPB, MRG) gene (Gene ID: 2173) in human. FABP7 is a member of the large family of hydrophobic ligand-binding proteins (FABPs). FABP proteins are involved in lipid metabolism, including uptake and intracellular trafficking of fatty acids and retinoids. They also play a role in gene regulation, cell signaling, cell growth, and differentiation. FABP7 is a brain-specific protein that is required for the establishment of the radial glial fiber system in the developing brain, a system that is necessary for the migration of immature neurons to establish cortical layers. It is expressed at high levels in the developing central nervous system. It is shown to be important in early nervous system development and is expressed in astrocytes and neuronal cell precursors in mature brain. FABP7 expression is reported to be higher during the light period and lower during the dark in brain regions involved in sleep and activity mechanisms. It is found in melanocytic lesions and has shown to regulate proliferation and invasion in melanoma cells in vitro, suggesting that it may play a role in cell proliferation and invasion. This ZooMAb recombinant monoclonal antibody, generated by our propriety technology, offers significantly enhanced specificity, affinity, reproducibility, and stability over conventional monoclonals.
