Secondary Accession Numbers
  • 7557
Name Serotransferrin
Synonyms
  1. Beta-1 metal-binding globulin
  2. Siderophilin
  3. Transferrin
Gene Name TF
Protein Type Unknown
Biological Properties
General Function Involved in ferric iron binding
Specific Function Transferrins 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
