Fatty acid uptake is partly controlled by the FATP gene family, of which at least five members are known in mice. Using the mmFATP1 cDNA as hybridization probe, a 1.6 kb partial cDNA clone was isolated from a human heart cDNA library. With 5' and 3' RACE procedures, the complete cDNA was isolated. Sequence comparisons with its mouse homologues identified this clone as hsFATP4.
