Fatty acid-binding protein, epidermal is a protein that in humans is encoded by the FABP5 gene.[1][2]

This gene encodes the fatty acid binding protein found in epidermal cells, and was first identified as being upregulated in psoriasis tissue. Fatty acid binding proteins are a family of small, highly conserved, cytoplasmic proteins that bind long-chain fatty acids and other hydrophobic ligands. It is thought that FABPs roles include fatty acid uptake, transport, and metabolism.[2]

Interactions[edit]

FABP5 has been shown to interact with S100A7.[3][4]
