Pltp

Official Full Name
phospholipid transfer protein
Background
The protein encoded by this gene is one of at least two lipid transfer proteins found in human plasma. The encoded protein transfers phospholipids from triglyceride-rich lipoproteins to high density lipoprotein (HDL). In addition to regulating the size of HDL particles, this protein may be involved in cholesterol metabolism. At least two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
Synonyms
PLTP; phospholipid transfer protein; BPI fold containing family E; BPIFE; lipid transfer protein II; HDLCQ9; zgc:100903
