|Official Full Name||transferrin|
|Background||This gene encodes a glycoprotein with an approximate molecular weight of 76.5 kDa. It 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 one ion of ferric iron. The function of this protein is to transport iron from the intestine, reticuloendothelial system, and liver parenchymal cells to all proliferating cells in the body. This protein may also have a physiologic role as granulocyte/pollen-binding protein (GPBP) involved in the removal of certain organic matter and allergens from serum. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2009] Transferrin is a metal-combining protein that reversibly bound to acid-soluble iron in plasma. It functions to transport iron to the bone marrow and to tissue storage organs such as the liver. Transferrin also participate in the regulation and control of iron absorption and protects against iron intoxication. Like haptoglobin, the carrier of hemoglobin, transferrin is synthesized in the liver, but unlike haptoglobin transferrin is returned to the circulation after unloading its iron in the reticuloendothelial system. This ELISA kit can be used to measure transferrin in serum, tissue extracts and other biological fluids.|
