  • Target

    • FunctionTransferrins are iron binding transport proteins which can bind two Fe(3+) ions in association with the binding of an anion, usually bicarbonate.
      Lactotransferrin has antimicrobial activity which depends on the extracellular cation concentration.
      Lactoferroxins A, B and C have opioid antagonist activity. Lactoferroxin A shows preference for mu-receptors, while lactoferroxin B and C have somewhat higher degrees of preference for kappa-receptors than for mu-receptors.
      The lactotransferrin transferrin-like domain 1 functions as a serine protease of the peptidase S60 family that cuts arginine rich regions. This function contributes to the antimicrobial activity.
    • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the transferrin family.
      Contains 2 transferrin-like domains.
    • Cellular localizationSecreted.
