Background The role of circulating FABP5 on metabolic alterations is under active evaluation. On the other hand, FABP5 SNPs (rs454550 and rs79370435) seem to modulate its effect. Objectives Our aim was to examine the role of circulating FABP5 levels and its main SNPs in atherogenic dyslipidemia (AD) assessed by 2D-Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and related metabolic and inflammation markers. We hypothesized that circulating FABP5 may be a biomarker for metabolic risk. Methods We studied 459 subjects admitted to the metabolism unit because of lipid metabolism disturbances and/or associated disorders. After a 6-week lipid-lowering drug wash-out period, anamnesis and physical examination were performed. Carotid intime-media thickness (cIMT) was measured by ultrasound. FABP5, FABP4, lipids, metabolic proteins, and enzymes were determined by biochemical methods. The lipid profile was assessed by NMR. The rs454550 and rs79370435 FABP5 gene variants were also determined. Results The FABP5 plasma levels were positively correlated with adiposity, glucose metabolism, and lipolysis parameters and were associated with AD, as assessed by NMR. There was a significant positive correlation between hsCRP and FABP5. The presence of type 2 diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, or AD was associated with higher FABP5 plasma levels (P <.005). The FABP5 concentrations, but not those of FABP4, were higher in patients with carotid plaques. FABP5 was a main determinant of plaque presence according to logistic regression analysis. The rare rs454550 allele was hyper-represented in nonobese subjects (P =.011). Conclusions FABP5 is a biomarker of adiposity-associated metabolic derangements that include AD thus underscoring the concomitant presence of inflammation. FABP5 is associated with increased subclinical atherosclerosis.
