Transferrin (Transferin, TF, Apotransferrin, Beta-1 Metal-binding Globulin, DKFZp781D0156, PRO1400, PRO1557, PRO2086, Serotransferrin Precursor, Siderophilin)
Description:
Transferrin (TF) is a glycoprotein with an approximate molecular weight of 76.5 kD. TF is thought to have been created as a result of an ancient gene duplication event that led to generation of homologous C and N-terminal domains each of which binds 1 ion of ferric iron. The function of transferrin is to transport iron from the intestine, reticuloendothelial system, and liver parenchymal cells to all proliferating cells in the body. In addition to its function in iron transport, transferrin may also have a physiologic role as granulocyte/pollen-binding protein (GPBP) involved in the removal of certain organic matter/allergins from serum.
