The FABP7 gene on chromosome 6 encodes the fatty acid binding protein 7, a type of hydrophobic ligand binding carrier protein with a high affinity for long-chain fatty acids. The protein encoded by FABP7 is expressed in astrocytes and neural progenitors.

A 2017 study reported that carriers of a rs2279381(A) allele of the FABP7 gene tend to have more fragmented sleep than non-carriers.[PMID 28435883OA-icon.png]
