Preparation and Storage
Stability and Storage
Shipped at 4°C. Store at -80°C. Avoid freeze / thaw cycle.
Constituents: 70% Sodium chloride, 22% Sodium phosphate monobasic, monohydrate, 8% Apotransferrin
ReconstitutionWe suggest the addition of de-ionized H2O to the original volume, followed by gentle swirling and/or vortexing to ensure adequate homogenization. If further dilution is required, we suggest using the lyophilization buffer.
- apo transferrin
FunctionTransferrins 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 specificityExpressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in TF are the cause of atransferrinemia (ATRAF) [MIM:209300]. Atransferrinemia is rare autosomal recessive disorder characterized by iron overload and hypochromic anemia.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the transferrin family.
Contains 2 transferrin-like domains.
