Summaries for MTTP Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MTTP Gene

  • MTP encodes the large subunit of the heterodimeric microsomal triglyceride transfer protein. Protein disulfide isomerase (PDI) completes the heterodimeric microsomal triglyceride transfer protein, which has been shown to play a central role in lipoprotein assembly. Mutations in MTP can cause abetalipoproteinemia. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for MTTP Gene

MTTP (Microsomal Triglyceride Transfer Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with MTTP include abetalipoproteinemia and abdominal obesity-metabolic syndrome 1. Among its related pathways are Lipoprotein metabolism and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include protein heterodimerization activity and lipid transporter activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for MTTP Gene

  • Catalyzes the transport of triglyceride, cholesteryl ester, and phospholipid between phospholipid surfaces (PubMed:23475612, PubMed:8939939, PubMed:26224785, PubMed:25108285, PubMed:22236406). Required for the secretion of plasma lipoproteins that contain apolipoprotein B (PubMed:23475612, PubMed:8939939, PubMed:26224785).
