1.C.40.1.8
Cholesteryl ester transfer protein, CETP of 493 aas and 1 TMS.  Involved in the transfer of neutral lipids, including cholesteryl esters and triglycerides, among lipoprotein particles. Allows the net movement of cholesteryl esters from high density lipoproteins/HDL to triglyceride-rich very low density lipoproteins/VLDL, and the equimolar transport of triglyceride from VLDL to HDL (Drayna et al. 1987; Morton and Izem 2014). Regulates reverse cholesterol transport, by which excess cholesterol is removed from peripheral tissues and returned to the liver for elimination (Qiu et al. 2007).
