Phosphatidylcholine transfer protein (PC-TP) is a cytosolic lipid transfer protein that promotes intermembrane transfer of phosphatidylcholines but no other phospholipids. Although its physiological function remains unknown, phosphatidylcholine transfer protein is enriched in liver and evidence from model systems suggests a role in hepatocellular selection and transport of biliary phospholipids. To facilitate in vivo studies, a cDNA encoding rat PC-TP was cloned by library screening and 5… CONTINUE READING
