Fatty Acid-Binding Proteins (FABPs) are a family of low-molecular-weight (14–15kDa) intracellular polypeptides that bind and solubilize long-chain fatty acids, thus controlling intracellular lipid dynamics (1,2). Ten members of the FABP family are expressed in humans, each with a specific cell and tissue expression pattern. The seventh member of the family is generally called FABP7 but is also known as brain lipid binding protein or BLBP. FABP7 is abundantly expressed in neural stem cells, radial glia and astrocytes of the developing brain and the retina but is heavily down regulated in the adult.
