Specificity of the mammalian glycolipid transfer proteins.
Turku, Finland. In Chem Phys Lipids, Jan 2016
Structurally the glycolipid transfer protein (GLTP) fold differs from other proteins that recognize glycolipids, such as non-specific lipid transfer proteins and lysosomal lipid degradation assisting proteins, even though they act on the same class of lipids.
Sphingolipid transfer proteins defined by the GLTP-fold.
Austin, United States. In Q Rev Biophys, Aug 2015
GLTPs and related homologs now are known to adopt a unique, helically dominated, two-layer 'sandwich' architecture defined as the GLTP-fold that provides the structural underpinning for the eukaryotic GLTP superfamily.
Glycolipid transfer proteins.
Austin, United States. In Biochim Biophys Acta, 2007
GLTP specificity encompasses both sphingoid- and glycerol-based glycolipids, but with a strict requirement that the initial sugar residue be beta-linked to the hydrophobic lipid backbone.
