Heart-type fatty acid binding protein (H-FABP) is a small (15 kDa) cytoplasmic protein that is abundant in tissues with active fatty acid metabolism, including the heart. Following ischemic injury, H-FABP is quickly released into the circulation via porous endothelial membranes of cardiac myocytes.  Myocardial damage can be evaluated in plasma within 1-3 hours after symptom … Read more
