Alpha-tocopherol transfer protein

Binds alpha-tocopherol, enhances its transfer between separate membranes, and stimulates its release from liver cells. Binds both phosphatidylinol 3,4-bisphosphate and phosphatidylinol 4,5-bisphosphate; the resulting conformation change is important for the release of the bound alpha-tocopherol (By similarity).

Below are the list of possible Alpha-tocopherol transfer protein products. If you cannot find the target and/or product is not available in our catalog, please click here to contact us and request the product or submit your request for custom elisa kit production, custom recombinant protein production or custom antibody production. Custom ELISA Kits, Recombinant Proteins and Antibodies can be designed, manufactured and produced according to the reer's specifications.

Alpha-tocopherol transfer protein

Also known as Alpha-tocopherol transfer protein (Alpha-TTP).
TTPA: Binds alpha-tocopherol and enhances its transfer between separate membranes. Defects in TTPA are the cause of ataxia with isolated vitamin E deficiency (AVED). AVED is an autosomal recessive disease characterized by spinocerebellar degeneration. It causes ataxia and peripheral neuropathy that resembles Friedreich ataxia. AVED patients have markedly reduced plasma levels of vitamin E.

Protein type: Lipid-binding

Cellular Component: cytosol; late endosome

Molecular Function: phosphatidylinositol-3,4-bisphosphate binding; phosphatidylinositol-4,5-bisphosphate binding; vitamin binding; vitamin E binding

Biological Process: developmental process; embryonic placenta development; intermembrane transport; intracellular pH reduction; placenta development; response to nutrient; response to pH; response to toxin; vitamin E metabolic process; vitamin transport
