Transferrin Receptor, P90, T9, TR, Transferrin Receptor (P90, CD71), Transferrin Receptor Protein 1, CD71 Antigen, IMD46, CD71, TFR1.
The Transferrin glycoproteins are responsible for the blood levels of free iron by binding to iron in the plasma. The transferrin molecules in humans are encoded by a gene called TF. Transferrin binds to iron in a tight but reversible way. The iron levels that binds to transferrin are very low in comparison to the total body iron, nonetheless, it is extremely vital iron levels with the greatest turnover rate.
TFRC produced in Sf9 Baculovirus cells is a single, glycosylated polypeptide chain containing 669 amino acids (101-760a.a.) and having a molecular mass of 74.9kDa. (Molecular size on SDS-PAGE will appear at approximately 70-100kDa). TFRC is expressed with a 9 amino acid His tag at C-Terminus and purified by proprietary chromatographic techniques
Sf9, Baculovirus cells.
TFRC protein solution (0.5mg/ml) contains Phosphate Buffered Saline (pH 7.4) and 10% glycerol.
For long term storage it is recommended to add a carrier protein (0.1% HSA or BSA).
Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles.
Greater than 90.0% as determined by SDS-PAGE.
