  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Ovotransferrin Chicken kit is highly sensitive two-site enzyme linked immunoassay (ELISA) for measuring Ovotransferrin in biological samples of chicken.

    In this assay the Ovotransferrin present in samples reacts with the anti-Ovotransferrin antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtiter wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti-Ovotransferrin antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP), are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound Ovotransferrin. Following another washing step, the enzyme bound to the immunosorbent is assayed by the addition of a chromogenic substrate, 3,3’,5,5’-tetramethylbenzidine (TMB). The quantity of bound enzyme varies directly with the concentration of Ovotransferrin in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of Ovotransferrin in the test sample. The quantity of Ovotransferrin in the test sample can be interpolated from the standard curve constructed from the standards, and corrected for sample dilution.

  • Research areas
  • Function
    Transferrins are iron binding transport proteins which can bind two Fe(3+) ions in association with the binding of an anion, usually bicarbonate. Responsible for the transport of iron from sites of absorption and heme degradation to those of storage and utilization. There are two forms of hen transferrin, ovotransferrin, found in the ovoducts and, serum transferrin, secreted by the liver. Serum transferrin may also have a role in stimulating cell proliferation and is regulated by iron levels. Ovotransferrin has a bacteriostatic function and, is not controlled by iron levels.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the transferrin family.
    Contains 2 transferrin-like domains.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    Different forms of hen transferrin are distinguished by their carbohydrate composition. Ovotransferrin and embryo serum transferrin but not adult serum transferrin, have bisecting N-acetylglucosamine. Transferrin secreted by embryo hepatocytes in primary culture is marked by the presence of (alpha1-6) fucosylation of the core N-acetylglucosamine. Serum transferrins also differ in the number of attached neuraminic acid residues. In both embryo forms, sialylation occurs on the Man (alpha 1-3)-linked antennae.
