Transferrin antibody | HTF-14
Transferrin is a 77 kDa plasma protein synthesized by the liver involved with the transport of iron. Each transferrin molecule has two domains, both with facility to carry 2 ferric ions. The iron/transferrin complex is essential for hemoglobin synthesis and certain types of cell division.
