Intestinal-FABP (I-FABP) Research Tools
Intestinal fatty acid binding protein (I-FABP) is located in the mature entrocytes of the small and large intestine. Many observations indicate that I-FABP is a useful biochemical marker for intestinal cell damage both in vivo and in vitro. When tissue damage occurs levels of I-FABP increase in both plasma and urine. Urinary I-FABP can indicate the number of dying epithelial intestinal cells making it a useful marker for intestinal disease.
Cambridge Bioscience offers a range of I-FABP assays, antibodies, peptides and recombinant proteins. Please click on the appropriate link below for further details.
