Phospholipid transfer protein (PLTP) plays an important role in transferring phospholipids between HDL molecules to modulate HDL size and composition and controlling plasma HDL levels. PLTP also transfers phospholipids from lipoproteins to HDL. PLTP plays a key role in reverse cholesterol transport and may promote atherosclerosis. PLTP is, therefore, considered a promising target for pharmacological intervention. BioVision"s PLTP Activity Fluorometric Assay Kit II uses a self-quenched fluorescent phospholipid that can be measured when transferred to an acceptor molecule. The fluorometric intensity is directly proportional to the amount of phospholipid transferred. Rabbit serum is provided as a positive control. This Assay Kit, in addition to measuring activity in serum, is also suitable for testing activity of recombinant protein.
