Cholesteryl ester transfer protein (CETP), also called plasma lipid transfer protein, is a plasma protein that facilitates the transport of cholesteryl esters and triglycerides between the lipoproteins. It collects triglycerides from very-low-density (VLDL) or low-density lipoproteins (LDL) and exchanges them for cholesteryl esters from high-density lipoproteins (HDL), and vice versa. Inhibition of CETP has been proposed as a strategy to raise HDL cholesterol levels, a potential an approach to retarding atherogenesis and a strategy to reduce cardiovascular risk.
