What is L-FABP?
- A soluble protein with a molecular weight of 14 kDa found in the proximal renal tubule. It plays an important role in energy and lipid metabolism in the renal tubules, which are responsible for the reabsorption of substances.
- When the proximal renal tubule is subjected to ischemia or oxidative stress, expression of L-FABP is elevated, resulting in an increased L-FABP concentration in excreted urine. It is a new biomarker that reflects the severity of stress given to the renal tubule, before progressing to renal tissue damage.
