Fatty acid binding proteins (FABPs) are an evolutionarily conserved intracellular lipid binding protein family which facilitates
lipid transport, metabolism and responses inside cells. Emerging evidence suggests dysregulated lipid metabolism and signalling
may result in development of diseases and cancer. In this review, we described the FABP family proteins and summarised their
association with different diseases. We have also described role of each FABP member played in development and malignant
dissemination of different types of cancers.
