Phospholipid lipid transfer protein (PLTP) is ubiquitously expressed in animal tissues and plays multiple roles in lipoprotein metabolism, but the function of peripheral PLTP is still poorly understood. Here we show that one of its possible functions is to transport cholesterol and phospholipids from cells to lipoprotein particles by a process involving… CONTINUE READING
