  • Product overview

    Abcam’s Transferrin Mouse ELISA kit is an in vitro enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) for the quantitative measurement of Transferrin in mouse serum and plasma samples.

    In this assay the Transferrin present in samples reacts with the anti-Transferrin antibodies which have been adsorbed to the surface of polystyrene microtiter wells. After the removal of unbound proteins by washing, anti-Transferrin antibodies conjugated with horseradish peroxidase (HRP) are added. These enzyme-labeled antibodies form complexes with the previously bound Transferrin. 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 Transferrin in the sample tested; thus, the absorbance, at 450 nm, is a measure of the concentration of Transferrin in the test sample. The quantity of Transferrin 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. It is responsible for the transport of iron from sites of absorption and heme degradation to those of storage and utilization. Serum transferrin may also have a further role in stimulating cell proliferation.
  • Tissue specificity

    Expressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in TF are the cause of atransferrinemia (ATRAF) [MIM:209300]. Atransferrinemia is rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by iron overload and hypochromic anemia.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the transferrin family.
    Contains 2 transferrin-like domains.
