Diversities in structure and function of ACBP were discussed in this review. ACBP are important proteins that could transport newly synthesized fatty acid, activated into -coA, from plastid to endoplasmic reticulum, where oil in the form of triacylglycerol occurs. ACBP were detected in various animal and plants species, which indicated their importance in biological function. In fact, involvement of ACBP in important process such as lipid metabolism, regulation of enzyme and gene expression, and in response to plant stresses has been proven in several studies. In this review, findings on ACBP of 11 well-known oil crops were reviewed to comprehend diversity, comparative analyses on ACBP structure were made, and link between structure and function, tissue expression and subcellular location of ACBP were also observed. Incomplete reports in some species were mentioned, which might be encouraging to start or to perform deeper studies. Similar characteristics were found in paralogs ACBP, and orthologs ACBP had different functions, despite the high identity in amino acid sequence. At the end, it is confirmed that ortholog proteins could not necessarily display the same function, even from closely related species.
