24824606 GLTP not only could be a significant player in cellular sphingolipid metabolism, but also could have a much broader role in the overall lipid metabolism.
23555818 GLTP mediates non-vesicular transport of ganglioside GM1 between native membranes
23519669 Comprehensive analysis of the dimerization interfaces discloses -helices 6 and 2 and the protein C-terminus (C-end) as three specific structural elements that are simultaneously involved in dimer formation and ligand binding by GLTP.
21625605 findings represent the first known phenotypic changes triggered by GLTP overexpression and regulated by direct interaction with a p120-catenin protein family member
20974858 This study represents the first characterization of any Gltp gene promoter and links human GLTP expression to sphingolipid homeostasis through ceramide
20959104 remarkable versatility for Trp, providing three distinct intramolecular functions in the novel amphitropic GLTP fold
19665998 GLTP and VAP-A were shown to interact.
19270338 Glycolipid acquisition by human glycolipid transfer protein dramatically alters intrinsic tryptophan fluorescence: insights into glycolipid binding affinity.
18657186 transgenic expression in Arabidopsis thaliana of human GLTP partially suppressed the phenotype of the acd11 null mutant, resulting in delayed programmed cell death development and plant survival
18261224 Active transcription was found for 12q24.11 GLTP but 11p15.1 GLTP was transcriptionally silent.
18261224 A single-copy 5-exon/4-intron GLTP gene at 12q24.11 was the highly conserved, transcript source of active GLTP in human and vertebrate cells. An intronless GLTP gene at 11p15.1 was transcriptionally silent, primate-specific, and yielded inactive protein.
17980653 GLTP is not likely involved in the de novo synthesis of glycosphingolipids, but could rather have a role as a glycolipid sensor for the cellular levels of glucosylceramide.
15901739 analysis of the liganding site in human glycolipid transfer protein
15504043 The rate-limiting step for glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) action appears to be the surface processes leading to the GLTP-glycosphingolipid complex formation and release associated with a shuttle/carrier mode of action.
15329726 crystal structures of apo-GLTP (1.65 A resolution) and lactosylceramide-bound (1.95 A) GLTP, in which the bound glycosphingolipid is sandwiched, after adaptive recognition, within a previously unknown two-layer all-alpha-helical topology
15287756 First insights into human GLTP structural dynamics by fluorescence spectroscopy, including global conformational changes that accompany GLTP folding into an active conformational state.
10671554 This paper describes the first cloning of the cDNAs encoding the glycolipid transfer proteins of bovine and porcine brain. The cDNAs are highly homologous to the human cDNA (AF209704).
10653652 This paper shows that the rate at which glycolipid transfer protein catalyzes the intermembrane transfer of glycolipids is greatly diminished by increasing the charged lipid content of membranes.
2190982 The paper describes the complete primary amino acid sequence of glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) from porcine brain. The sequence was determined by Edman degradation.
