Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits lipid transfer activity; phosphatidylinositol bisphosphate binding activity; and vitamin E binding activity. Involved in several processes, including intermembrane lipid transfer; negative regulation of establishment of blood-brain barrier; and vitamin E metabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and late endosome. Used to study familial isolated deficiency of vitamin E. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial isolated deficiency of vitamin E. Orthologous to human TTPA (alpha tocopherol transfer protein).
