Purification notesab31996 was prepared from monospecific antiserum, delipidated and defibrinated. Assayed by immunoelectrophoresis resulted in a single precipitin arc against purified and partially purified human spleen ferritin.
FunctionStores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Important for iron homeostasis. Has ferroxidase activity. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation. Also plays a role in delivery of iron to cells. Mediates iron uptake in capsule cells of the developing kidney.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ferritin family. Contains 1 ferritin-like diiron domain.
FormSubunit structure: Oligomer of 24 subunits. There are two types of subunits: L (light) chain and H (heavy) chain. The major chain can be light or heavy, depending on the species and tissue type. In the human liver, the heavy chain is predominant. The functional molecule forms a roughly spherical shell with a diameter of 12 nm and contains a central cavity into which the insoluble mineral iron core is deposited.
