FABP is a newly introduced plasma marker of acute myocardial infarction (AMI). The plasma kinetics of FABP (15kD) closely resemble those of myoglobin in that elevated plasma concentrations are found within 3 hour after AMI and return to normal generally within 12 to 24 hours. This makes FABP useful biochemical markers for the early assessment of exclusion of AMI. The myocardial tissue content of FABP (0.5mg/g) is 5-fold lower than that of myoglobin (2.5mg/g), but the reference plasma concentration of FABP (ca. 2pg/L) is about 15-fold lower than that of myoglobin (ca. 32mg/L), together suggesting a superior performance of FABP for early detection of AMI. FABP also appears a useful plasma marker for the estimation of myocardial infarct size.

Package: lyophilized powder. Recommend reconstituting with distilled water.

Purity: >98% as determined by a 10-20% gradient SDS-PAGE. The immunological reactivity was confirmed with a monoclonal antibody that is specific for the fatty acid binding protein.

USE: Suitable as a standard in immunoassay for early detection of acute myocardial infarction, as an immunogen for antisera production and as a racer for iodination.

Storage: Store at -20 DEG C. Avoid frequent freeze thaw cycles.

Warning: Made with human heart tissue. Blood samples from tissue donors were tested and found negative for HbSAg, HIV-1 and HIV-2 antibodies and HCV. Treat as if capable of   transmitting infection Handle at Biosafety Level II conditions.
