Tissue specificityExpressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CETP are a cause of hyperalphalipoproteinemia (HYPALIP) [MIM:143470]. Affected individuals show high levels of alpha-lipoprotein (high density lipoprotein/HDL).
Defects in CETP are the cause of cholesteryl ester transfer protein deficiency (CETP deficiency) [MIM:607322]. This is an autosomal dominant condition associated with increased HDL cholesterol levels.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the BPI/LBP/Plunc superfamily. BPI/LBP family.
