The role of heart-type cytosolic fatty acid-binding protein (H-FABP) in mediating whole body and muscle-specific long-chain fatty acid (LCFA) and glucose utilization was examined using exercise as a phenotyping tool. Catheters were chronically implanted in a carotid artery and jugular vein of wild-type (WT, n = 8), heterozygous (H-FABP+/-, n = 8), and null (H-FABP-/-, n = 7) chow-fed C57BL/6J mice, and mice were allowed to recover for 7 days.
