B-FABP could be involved in the transport of a so far unknown hydrophobic ligand with potential morphogenic activity during CNS development. It is required for the establishment of the radial glial fiber system in developing brain, a system that is necessary for the migration of immature neurons to establish cortical layers. Belongs to the calycin superfamily. Fatty-acid binding protein (FABP) family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Cell cycle regulation; Cell development/differentiation; Lipid-binding
