MTTP Catalyzes the transport of triglyceride, cholesteryl ester, and phospholipid between phospholipid surfaces. Required for the secretion of plasma lipoproteins that contain apolipoprotein B. Liver and small intestine. Also found in ovary, testis and kidney. 2 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
