機能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.
組織特異性Expressed in brain and other neural tissues.
配列類似性Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family.
ドメインForms a beta-barrel structure that accommodates the hydrophobic ligand in its interior.
