Gene Information


Ferritin is an iron storage protein that plays a central role in iron metabolism, and may be elevated in inflammatory or malignant diseases. It has been used in studies as an indicator of body iron supply, but may prove inaccurate in in the presence of chronic inflammation.

Ações bioquímicas/fisiológicas

A ubiquitous iron storage protein that plays a key role in iron metabolism. It serves as an intracellular iron reserve (particularly in spleen, liver, intestinal mucosa, and bone marrow) and functions in iron detoxification. Studies have shown that ferritin iron incorporation is mediated by a ferroxidase activity associated with ferritin H subunits and a nucleation center associated with ferritin L subunits. Release of iron from ferritin has an essential role in iron-dependent lipid peroxidation and may contribute to free radical-induced cell damage in vivo. Therefore, by binding iron, ferritin may function as an antioxidant.

Menstruation and desquamation are important routes for humans to excrete iron. Because menstruation is no longer available in postmenopausal women, in the present study, we examined whether iron accumulates more in postmenopausal skin than in premenopausal skin. Skin biopsy samples...

The mechanisms through which iron-dependent enzymes receive their metal cofactors are largely unknown. Poly r(C)-binding protein 1 (PCBP1) is an iron chaperone for ferritin; both PCBP1 and its paralog PCBP2 are required for iron delivery to the prolyl hydroxylase that...

A low supply of iron in the diet may result in iron deficiency and mild iron-deficiency anaemia in healthy individuals. Women are more susceptible than men because of menstrual iron loss. We compared the effect of a low dose of...
