FAMILY
  • calycin superfamily
  • fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family
  • CATEGORY structural protein , transport
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION
    basic FUNCTION
  • potentially involved in the transport of fatty acids or metabolism of myelin lipids
  • acting synergistically with MBP to cause stacking of lipid bilayers (Suresh 2010)
  • lipid binding activity (Hayasaka 1991)
  • may play a role in lipid transport protein in Schwann cells
  • forms a beta-barrel structure that accomodates hydrophobic ligand in its interior
