Intended Use

Heart-type fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) is a soluble protein that is abundant in cardiomyocytes and has a molecular weight of approximately 15 k Da. It is involved in intracellular transport of free fatty acids, and plays an important role in supplying energy to cardiomyocytes. Because it is released into the blood when cardiomyocytes are injured by myocardial ischemia, it is known as an important marker for the early diagnosis of acute myocardial infarction (AMI).
