Application

Transferrin is the primary iron binding and cell delivery molecule present in serum. Serum-free cell culture systems require a delivery format for iron. Transferrin is the preferential delivery form of iron because cells process transferrin bound iron in a physiologically appropriate way through transferrin receptors on the cell surface. Human apo-transferrin is a high affinity transferrin that can be used with a wide range of cells types. Apo-transferrin can be loaded with iron prior to use or added directly to an iron containing medium.

What is the carbohydrate content of human transferrin?
We have found the information on transferrin in a reference book: The Plasma Proteins, F.W. Putnam, ed, volume 2, chapter 4, Table II. According to the table, Transferrin is 6 percent carbohydrate, citing G.A. Jamieson, J. Biol. Chem. 240(7), 2914-2920 (1965). The table also gives information on the percentage of each type of monosaccharide that is present.
