The critical importance of long-chain fatty acids in cellular homeostasis demands an efficient uptake system for these fatty acids and their metabolism in tissues. Increasing evidence suggests that the plasma-membrane-associated and cytoplasmic fatty-acid-binding proteins are involved in cellular...
Lipid-binding proteins function to transport lipids across membranes and aqueous phases and act to solubilise their cargo, protect it from chemical damage and probably also to define its destination. As such, they have been adapted to carry out a broad spectrum of biological functions in addition...
The interest in fatty-acid-binding proteins has produced about 1000 research papers since their discovery nearly 30 years ago. This review provides an entry to the mammalian and nonmammalian literature through a compendium of categorized review articles (nearly 60). Publications that have not yet...
