Native human Ferritin is a purified preparation of human ferritin from liver tissue. Ferritin is a globular protein composed of 24 identical subunits responsible for storing iron in an available non-toxic form. Ferritin is found primarily in hepatic tissue. Serum levels of ferritin are used as an indicator for anaemia and restless leg syndrome. Ferrin levels are a direct correlate for the total amount of irron stored in the body
