We propose that inhibition of FABP5 represents a novel approach to diverting endogenous RA from pro-proliferative PPAR to anti-proliferative RAR receptors, and further propose the use of furan-containing fatty acids as agents to target RA to RAR. We hypothesize that this pharmacologic inhibition will prevent the oncogenic effects of FABP5 overexpression in highly relevant breast cancer models that display a high ratio of FABP5CRABP-II expression.
