Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_F40F4.3, F40F4.3
lbp-1 encodes a predicted secreted fatty acid binding protein (FABP) that is similar to the Ascaris suum secreted FABP As-p18; by homology, LBP-1 is predicted to function in sequestering or transporting small hydrophobic molecules such as lipids and steroid hormones; an lbp-1::gfp promoter fusion is expressed in the embryo, beginning at gastrulation, in presumptive hypodermal precursors; lbp-1::gfp hypodermal expression continues in hyp7 nuclei through hatching and is then seen only in one ventral cord neuron from the L1 to adult stages; an LBP-1::GFP fusion construct that contains the predicted LBP-1 secretory signal is secreted into the perivitelline fluid prior to hatching.
