Transferrin (TF) is an iron (Fe) transport protein and found in blood plasma and brain extracellular fluids. It belongs to the family of Fe-binding glycoproteins. TF is made of a single polypeptide chain with two domains and each domain consists of a Fe-binding site. It helps in the transport of Fe(III) between the cells in soluble and non-toxic forms. TF also acts as a bacteriostatic agent as well as a growth factor. It binds to the transferrin receptor to mediate the cellular uptake of bound Fe. The TF gene is mapped on the human chromosome at 3q22.1. The antibody pair provided in this kit recognizes human serotransferrin.
