Heart fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is a small protein localised in a variety of cells including cardiac myocytes. Following acute myocardial infarction (AMI) H-FABP leaks from necrotic cells into the circulation. Significantly elevated serum/plasma concentrations are found within 3 hours after acute myocardial infarction, which generally return to normal levels within 12 to 24 hours. These features make H-FABP a useful research tool for the early assessment of acute myocardial infarction. H-FABP has also been shown to be more effective than Troponin I in stratifying chronic heart failure patients.
Cambridge Bioscience offers both polyclonal and monoclonal H-FABP antibodies in purified and biotinylated formats. Please browse our selection below for more details.
