General description

Transferrin is a bilobed glycoprotein. The polypeptide chain of transferrin is composed of two homologous lobes i.e N- and C- lobes. Each lobe is made of two domains N1, N2 and C1, C2 which are linked by a hinge. It has two specific sites for binding of Fe3+.


Anti-Transferrin antibody has been used:
• in quantitative precipitin assay
• in enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA)
• in western blotting
• in immunoblotting

Biochem/physiol Actions

Transferrin is the major iron transporter protein that binds Fe(+3). The transferring-iron import system consists of a TonB dependent transporter (TbpA), and a lipoprotein co-receptor (TbpB) and both proteins work together in the transport of iron across the membrane.

Transferrin plays a major role in providing iron as a source for haemoglobin synthesis. It binds to the transferrin receptor 1(TfR1).
