Summaries for GLTP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GLTP Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is similar to bovine and porcine proteins which accelerate transfer of certain glycosphingolipids and glyceroglycolipids between membranes. It is thought to be a cytoplasmic protein. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GLTP Gene

GLTP (Glycolipid Transfer Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Sphingolipid metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include lipid binding and glycolipid transporter activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GLTP Gene

  • Accelerates the intermembrane transfer of various glycolipids. Catalyzes the transfer of various glycosphingolipids between membranes but does not catalyze the transfer of phospholipids. May be involved in the intracellular translocation of glucosylceramides.
