Transferrin
Description:
Transferrin is a single polypeptide chain glycoprotein. It is a member of the iron binding family of proteins. It has a molecular weight of 79.5kD and a serum concentration range of 1800-2700mg/L. It is synthesized in the liver. It consists of two domains each having a high affinity reversible binding site for Fe3+. The iron is transported in blood and interstitial fluids to sites of use and disposal. Iron/transferrin is essential in hemoglobin synthesis and for certain types of cell division. Serum concentration rises in iron deficiency and pregnancy and falls in iron overload, infection and inflammatory conditions.

Applications:
Suitable for use in Western Blot, ELISA and Immunoprecipitation. Other applications have not been tested.

Recommended Dilution:
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. Aliquot to avoid repeated freezing and thawing. Store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for 12 months. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap.
