CD71 is specific for the human transferrin receptor, MW 190 kdaltons (kDa), 90 kDa reduced. CD71 antigen expression is low on normal resting lymphocytes and is expressed on all cells upon activation.The transferrin receptor is esssential for iron transport into proliferating cells, such as mitogen-activated and alloantigen-activated lymphoblasts. The transferrin receptor is also present on early erythroid cells but is lost as reticulocytes differentiate into mature erythrocytes.
