Product Overview:
Fatty acid binding protein 4 (Adipocyte-FABP, aP2, FABP4) is one of nine known cytosolic fatty acid binding proteins ranging in size from 14-15 kDa containing 127-132 amino acids.{11979} FABP4 is highly expressed in adipocytes and is regulated by peroxisome-proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPARγ) agonists, insulin and fatty acids. Recent studies using FABP4 gene deletion in mice indicate a dominant role for FABP4 in several chronic metabolic diseases. Therefore, inhibiting the function of FABP4 is a potential mechanism for the treatment of metabolic diseases like diabetes and atherosclerosis.{14840,12286} Cayman’s FABP4 Ligand Binding Assay Kit provides a simple, reproducible, and sensitive tool for the identification of FABP4 ligands. The assay makes use of a Detection Reagent that exhibits increased fluorescence at 500 nm when bound to FABP4. Any strong ligand and/or inhibitor of FABP4 will displace the Detection Reagent thereby reducing the fluorescence. FABP4 is provided in high purity and in sufficient quantity for 100 tests.

Cayman Chemical's mission is to help make research possible by supplying scientists worldwide with the basic research tools necessary for advancing human and animal health. Our utmost commitment to healthcare researchers is to offer the highest quality products with an affordable pricing policy.

Our scientists are experts in the synthesis, purification, and characterization of biochemicals ranging from small drug-like heterocycles to complex biolipids, fatty acids, and many others. We are also highly skilled in all aspects of assay and antibody development, protein expression, crystallization, and structure determination.

Over the past thirty years, Cayman developed a deep knowledge base in lipid biochemistry, including research involving the arachidonic acid cascade, inositol phosphates, and cannabinoids. This knowledge enabled the production of reagents of exceptional quality for cancer, oxidative injury, epigenetics, neuroscience, inflammation, metabolism, and many additional lines of research.

Our organic and analytical chemists specialize in the rapid development of manufacturing processes and analytical methods to carry out clinical and commercial GMP-API production. Pre-clinical drug discovery efforts are currently underway in the areas of bone restoration and repair, muscular dystrophy, oncology, and inflammation. A separate group of Ph.D.-level scientists are dedicated to offering Hit-to-Lead Discovery and Profiling Services for epigenetic targets. Our knowledgeable chemists can be contracted to perform complete sample analysis for analytes measured by the majority of our assays. We also offer a wide range of analytical services using LC-MS/MS, HPLC, GC, and many other techniques.
