Structured_description Provisional_descriptionlbp-2 encodes a homolog of the novel fatty acid binding protein, As-p18, found in the parasitic nematode Ascaris suum; As-p18 is a member of a family of small intracellular fatty acid binding proteins (iFABPs); the expression pattern of lpb-2 is consistent with it being secreted into the perienteric fluid where it may play a role in lipid transport beween the intestine and body wall; a lbp-2 promoter::gfp fusion reporter is restricted to body wall muscle cells abutting the pseudocoelom.
