FABP2 protein (human) - STRING interaction network
"FABP2" - Fatty acid-binding protein, intestinal in Homo sapiens
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

FABP2Fatty 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; 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; Lipases (1076 aa)
       
  0.926
GOT2
Aspartate aminotransferase, mitochondrial; Catalyzes the irreversible transamination of the L- tryptophan metabolite L-kynurenine to form kynurenic acid (KA). Plays a key role in amino acid metabolism. Important for metabolite exchange between mitochondria and cytosol. Facilitates cellular uptake of long-chain free fatty acids; Belongs to the class-I pyridoxal-phosphate-dependent aminotransferase family (430 aa)
     
   
  0.926
FABP1
Fatty acid-binding protein, liver; Plays a role in lipoprotein-mediated cholesterol uptake in hepatocytes. 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)
     
   
  0.925
FABP4
Fatty 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)
         
0.912
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). In vitro binds to bile acids in the order- deoxycholic acid > cholic acid > chenodeoxycholic acid and respective BA conjugation modifies affinities in the order taurine-conjugated > glycine-conjugated > unconjugated bile acids. Stimulates gastric acid and pepsinogen secretion (By similarity); Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family (177 aa)
     
   
  0.843
MANBA
Beta-mannosidase; Exoglycosidase that cleaves the single beta-linked mannose residue from the non-reducing end of all N-linked glycoprotein oligosaccharides; Mannosidases type beta (879 aa)
           
  0.715
INSIG2
Insulin-induced gene 2 protein; Mediates feedback control of cholesterol synthesis by controlling SCAP and HMGCR. Functions by blocking the processing of sterol regulatory element-binding proteins (SREBPs). Capable of retaining the SCAP-SREBF2 complex in the ER thus preventing it from escorting SREBPs to the Golgi. Seems to regulate the ubiquitin-mediated proteasomal degradation of HMGCR (225 aa)
     
   
  0.714
AGR2
Anterior gradient protein 2 homolog; Required for MUC2 post-transcriptional synthesis and secretion. May play a role in the production of mucus by intestinal cells (By similarity). Proto-oncogene that may play a role in cell migration, cell differentiation and cell growth. Promotes cell adhesion; Protein disulfide isomerases (175 aa)
     
 
  0.697
GATA5
Transcription factor GATA-5; Transcription factor required during cardiovascular development. Plays an important role in the transcriptional program(s) that underlies smooth muscle cell diversity (By similarity). Binds to the functionally important CEF-1 nuclear protein binding site in the cardiac-specific slow/cardiac troponin C transcriptional enhancer; GATA zinc finger domain containing (397 aa)
     
   
  0.647
MLXIPL
Carbohydrate-responsive element-binding protein; Transcriptional repressor. Binds to the canonical and non-canonical E box sequences 5’-CACGTG-3’ (By similarity); Basic helix-loop-helix proteins (852 aa)
