|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|

PLTP involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways PLTP participated on our site, such as PPAR signaling pathway, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with PLTP were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.

PLTP has several biochemical functions, for example, lipid binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PLTP itself. We selected most functions PLTP had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PLTP. You can find most of the proteins on our site.

PLTP has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with PLTP here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of PLTP.
