In the present study we have investigated the transfer of phospholipids between vesicles and rat liver mitochondria. Transfer was measured by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy using vesicles that contained spin-labeled phospholipids. A spontaneous transfer was observed which could be strongly inhibited by treating the mitochondria with the thiol reagent mersalyl. Transfer was also greatly reduced after a saline wash of the mitochondria; the transfer activity was then recovered in the… Expand

Non-protein-mediated transfer of phosphatidic acid between microsomal and mitochondrial membranes.
TLDR
The initial rate of this non-protein-mediated transfer of phosphatidic acid was virtually independent of the concentration of the acceptor membranes (mitochondria), thus indicating that it occurs by diffusion of the phospholipid through the aqueous phase rather than by membrane collision. Expand
Acyl chain and headgroup specificity of human plasma phospholipid transfer protein.
TLDR
The mechanism of PLTP-mediated phospholipid transfer was studied by determining the acyl chain and headgroup specificity and comparing the results with those obtained with the non-specific lipid transfer protein (ns-LTP), a previously characterised intracellular transfer protein. Expand
Phospholipid binding and transfer by the nonspecific lipid-transfer protein (sterol carrier protein 2). A kinetic model.
TLDR
It was inferred that incorporation of acidic phospholipids into vesicles enhanced the interaction of nsL-TP with the membrane interface, without affecting the equilibrium binding ofospholipid monomers to nsL/PamPyrGroPCho complex. Expand
The subcellular distribution of the nonspecific lipid transfer protein (sterol carrier protein 2) in rat liver and adrenal gland.
TLDR
Cytochemical visualization in adrenal tissue with specific antibodies against the nonspecific lipid transfer protein showed that immunoreactive protein(s) were present mainly in the peroxisome-like structures. Expand
Lipid transfer proteins.
TLDR
An overview of lipid transfer proteins, which are able to catalyze inter-membrane transfer and exchange of lipids, and their physiological role has not been clearly demonstrated. Expand
Purification and characterisation of a non-specific lipid transfer protein from goat liver.
TLDR
A non-specific lipid transfer protein has been purified from the pH 5.1 supernatant of goat liver by DEAE-cellulose, CM- cellulose and Sephadex G-75 column chromatography and Amino acid analysis reveals the absence of methionine. Expand
Intermembrane cholesterol transfer: Role of sterol carrier proteins and phosphatidylserine
TLDR
The data suggest that SCP2 increase in activity for sterol transfer may be partly ascribed to charge on the phospholipid. Expand
Kinetics of fluorescent-labeled phosphatidylcholine transfer between nonspecific lipid transfer protein and phospholipid vesicles.
Recently, rat liver nonspecific lipid transfer protein (nsLTP) was shown to form a fluorescent complex when allowed to equilibrate with self-quenching vesicles prepared from the fluorescentExpand
Transfer of cholesterol and oxysterol derivatives by the nonspecific lipid transfer protein (sterol carrier protein 2): a study on its mode of action.
TLDR
It is proposed that nsLTP may facilitate the transfer of lipids by being part of a transient collisional complex between donor and acceptor membrane. Expand
The non-specific lipid-transfer protein (sterol carrier protein 2) and its relationship to peroxisomes.
The non-specific lipid-transfer protein (nsL-TP), also known as sterol carrier protein 2 (SCP2), is a small (M(r) 13,000) basic protein which catalyzes in vitro the transfer of a great variety ofExpand

The non-specific lipid transfer protein (sterol carrier protein 2) from rat and bovine liver.
TLDR
Non-specific lipid transfer protein (nsL-TP) purified from rat and bovine liver accelerates the transfer of all common diacylglycerophospholipids, cholesterol as well as glycosphingolipid and gangliosides between membranes and is capable of mediating net transfer of cholesterol to membranes. Expand
Sterol carrier and lipid transfer proteins.
TLDR
The results described in the present review support the concept that intracellular lipid transfer is a highly specific process, far more substrate-specific than suggested by the earlier studies conducted using liposomal techniques. Expand

Determination of nonspecific lipid transfer protein in rat tissues and Morris hepatomas by enzyme immunoassay.
TLDR
Levels in other tissues including brain, lung, kidney, spleen, heart, adrenals, ovary and testis were 5-10-fold lower than in liver, whereas a reduction of 65% was observed in the slow-growing Morris hepatomas 7787 and 9633. Expand
Secretion of a nonspecific lipid transfer protein by hepatoma cells in culture.
TLDR
Evidence presented in this report suggests that, at least in the case of cultured hepatoma cells, nsLTP is secreted, and does not play an important role in the cytosolic transport of phospholipid and sterol. Expand

On the mechanism of spontaneous transfer of lipids from isolated microsomal to mitochondrial membranes.
TLDR
Spontaneous (protein independent) transfer of endogenously biosynthesized radioactive lipids from isolated guinea pig liver microsomal to unlabelled mitochondrial membranes was studied and it was found that transfer was not absolutely dependent on addition of ATP, although its presence enhanced the transfer of phosphatidylcholine. Expand
Transfer of phosphatidic acid between microsomal and mitochondrial outer and inner membranes.
TLDR
It is suggested that the transfer of phosphatidic acid from the outer to the inner mitochondrial membrane is not mediated by transfer proteins but occurs either by direct contact of the membranes or as free diffusion through the aqueous phase. Expand
