Gene: Pltp (phospholipid transfer protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pltp
Name: phospholipid transfer protein
RGD ID: 1306695
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including lipid transfer activity; lipoprotein particle binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including lipid transport; positive regulation of cholesterol efflux; and vitamin E biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to high-density lipoprotein particle and nucleus. Orthologous to human PLTP (phospholipid transfer protein); PARTICIPATES IN reverse cholesterol transport pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: BPI fold containing family E; Bpife; LOC296371
