Glycolipid transfer protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the GLTP gene.[1][2][3]

The protein encoded by this gene is similar to bovine and porcine proteins which accelerate transfer of certain glycosphingolipids and glyceroglycolipids between membranes. It is thought to be a cytoplasmic protein.[3]
