||Recombinant human CRABP2 was expressed in E.coli and purified by using conventional chromatography techniques, 15.6 kDa (138 aa).
||The cellular retinoic acid-binding protein II (CRABP-II) is involved in the conversion of vitamin A into its intracellular active form retinoic acid, which regulate the genes responsible for lipid metabolism and adipocyte differentiation. CRABP2 gene is located on chromosome 1q21-23 and this region has been linked with related disorders such as familial combined hyperlipidemia (FCHL) and type 2 diabetes mellitus.
