Domain relationships



Glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) is a cytosolic protein that catalyses the intermembrane transfer of glycolipids such as glycosphingolipids, glyceroglycolipids, and possibly glucosylceramides, but not of phospholipids. The GLTP protein consists of a single domain with a multi-helical structure consisting of two layers of orthogonally packed helices [PMID: 15504043, PMID: 16309699].

The GLTP domain is also found in trans-Golgi network proteins involved in Golgi-to-cell-surface membrane traffic [PMID: 15107860].
