PA1-86736 shows minimal cross reactivity with related serum proteins.
Transferrin, an approximately 80kDa blood plasma glycoprotein synthesized by the liver, contains two specific high-affinity iron (Fe3+) binding sites and is responsible for the transport and supply of an exchangeable pool of iron, through binding to cell surface transferrin receptors. Transferrin is the primary blood iron transport protein and under normal conditions; approximately one-third of total blood transferrin contains bound iron. Measurement of blood transferrin levels can be used as an indicator for blood iron-carrying capacity and abnormalities of iron metabolism such as anaemia, iron overload and haemochromatosis.
