Fatty Acid-Binding Proteins and Their Roles in Human Health and Disease: From Basic Science to Clinical Application

Asim K. Duttaroy

Fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs) coordinate lipid trafficking and signaling in cells. In addition to their traditional role as fatty acid trafficking proteins, increasing evidence supports the role of FABPs as essential controllers of global metabolism, with their dysregulation linked to metabolic disorders and other several diseases. Fatty Acid-Binding Proteins and Their Roles in Human Health and Disease: From Basic Science to Clinical Application presents the latest information on the contributions of different FABPs in physiology and pathophysiology, and their importance in clinical outcomes. The book is divided into six main sections that cover from FABP biology and their role in inflammation and diseases, such as cardiovascular, neurological, and liver diseases, to FABPs and their clinical applications. Each chapter thoroughly reviews current literature, primary research data and clinical cases, providing readers with an overview of the latest information in the expanded field of FABPs. This is an invaluable resource for both researchers and clinicians familiar with and those new to the exciting and everchanging world of fatty acid-binding proteins and clinical disorders.

About the Author

Duttaroy, Asim K.: - Dr. Asim K. Duttaroy is a professor at the Faculty of Medicine, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway. His research programs focus on the roles of food components on growth and development, as well as in the prevention of diseases such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. He is also investigating the roles of the antiplatelet and antihypertensive properties of fruits and vegetables. His discoveries of antithrombotic factors in tomatoes and kiwifruits are patented internationally, and three companies (Provexis Limited in the United Kingdom, IDIA AS in Norway, and Genimen Pharmacon in India) are working to commercialize these discoveries. He has published over 265 original contributions and reviews, 6 books, and several book chapters and editorials, and he is the Editor-in-Chief of the journal Food & Nutrition Research, as well as a guest editor of several journals such as Nutrients and Frontiers in Physiology.
