Technical Data
Transferrin (Transferin, TF, Apotransferrin, Beta-1 Metal-binding Globulin, DKFZp781D0156, PRO1400, PRO1557, PRO2086, Serotransferrin Precursor, Siderophilin)
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, this protein may also have a physiologic role as granulocyte/pollen-binding protein (GPBP) involved in the removal of certain organic matter/allergins from serum.

Suitable for use in Immunofluorescence and ELISA. Other applications not tested.

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

Cellular Localization: Secreted

Storage and Stability:
May be stored at 4C for short-term only. For long-term storage and to avoid repeated freezing and thawing, add sterile glycerol (40-50%), aliquot and store at -20C. Aliquots are stable for at least 3 months at -20C. For maximum recovery of product, centrifuge the original vial after thawing and prior to removing the cap. Further dilutions can be made in assay buffer.
