Fabp4 protein (Rattus norvegicus) - STRING interaction network
"Fabp4" - Fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte in Rattus norvegicus
Nodes:
Network nodes represent proteins
splice isoforms or post-translational modifications are collapsed, i.e. each node represents all the proteins produced by a single, protein-coding gene locus.
Node Color
colored nodes:
query proteins and first shell of interactors
white nodes:
second shell of interactors
Node Content
empty nodes:
proteins of unknown 3D structure
filled nodes:
some 3D structure is known or predicted
Edges:
Edges represent protein-protein associations
associations are meant to be specific and meaningful, i.e. proteins jointly contribute to a shared function; this does not necessarily mean they are physically binding each other.
Known Interactions
from curated databases
experimentally determined
Predicted Interactions
gene neighborhood
gene fusions
gene co-occurrence
Others
textmining
co-expression
protein homology

Fabp4Fatty acid-binding protein, adipocyte; Lipid transport protein in adipocytes. Binds both long chain fatty acids and retinoic acid. Delivers long-chain fatty acids and retinoic acid to their cognate receptors in the nucleus (By similarity); Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family (132 aa)    
Predicted Functional Partners:
Lipe
Hormone-sensitive lipase; In adipose tissue and heart, it primarily hydrolyzes stored triglycerides to free fatty acids, while in steroidogenic tissues, it principally converts cholesteryl esters to free cholesterol for steroid hormone production; Belongs to the ’GDXG’ lipolytic enzyme family (1068 aa)
     
  0.973
Fabp1
Fatty acid-binding protein, liver; Plays a role in lipoprotein-mediated cholesterol uptake in hepatocytes (By similarity). Binds cholesterol. Binds free fatty acids and their coenzyme A derivatives, bilirubin, and some other small molecules in the cytoplasm. May be involved in intracellular lipid transport (By similarity); Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family (127 aa)
     
 
  0.935
Pparg
Peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; Nuclear receptor that binds peroxisome proliferators such as hypolipidemic drugs and fatty acids. Once activated by a ligand, the nuclear receptor binds to DNA specific PPAR response elements (PPRE) and modulates the transcription of its target genes, such as acyl-CoA oxidase. It therefore controls the peroxisomal beta-oxidation pathway of fatty acids. Key regulator of adipocyte differentiation and glucose homeostasis. ARF6 acts as a key regulator of the tissue-specific adipocyte P2 (aP2) enhancer. Acts as a critical regulator of gut ho [...] (505 aa)
     
 
  0.902
Fabp6
Gastrotropin; Binds to bile acids and is involved in enterohepatic bile acid metabolism. Required for efficient apical to basolateral transport of conjugated bile acids in ileal enterocytes (By similarity). Stimulates gastric acid and pepsinogen secretion (By similarity); Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family (128 aa)
         
  0.883
Adipoq
Adiponectin, C1Q and collagen domain containing (244 aa)
     
   
  0.866
Lpl
Lipoprotein lipase; The primary function of this lipase is the hydrolysis of triglycerides of circulating chylomicrons and very low density lipoproteins (VLDL). Binding to heparin sulfate proteogylcans at the cell surface is vital to the function. The apolipoprotein, APOC2, acts as a coactivator of LPL activity in the presence of lipids on the luminal surface of vascular endothelium; Belongs to the AB hydrolase superfamily. Lipase family (474 aa)
     
   
  0.839
Fabp2
Fatty acid-binding protein, intestinal; FABP are thought to play a role in the intracellular transport of long-chain fatty acids and their acyl-CoA esters. FABP2 is probably involved in triglyceride-rich lipoprotein synthesis. Binds saturated long-chain fatty acids with a high affinity, but binds with a lower affinity to unsaturated long- chain fatty acids. FABP2 may also help maintain energy homeostasis by functioning as a lipid sensor (By similarity) (132 aa)
         
0.829
Fabp5
Fatty acid-binding protein, epidermal; High specificity for fatty acids. Highest affinity for C18 chain length (By similarity) (135 aa)
     
 
0.813
Fabp3
Fatty acid-binding protein, heart; FABP are thought to play a role in the intracellular transport of long-chain fatty acids and their acyl-CoA esters (133 aa)
     
 
0.810
Fabp7
Fatty acid-binding protein, brain; B-FABP could be involved in the transport of a so far unknown hydrophobic ligand with potential morphogenic activity during CNS development. It is required for the establishment of the radial glial fiber system in developing brain, a system that is necessary for the migration of immature neurons to establish cortical layers; Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family (132 aa)
