|Application ||IHC-P, IF, E|
|Dilution||ELISA (1:500000), IHC-P (1:50),|
|Other Names||Serotransferrin, Transferrin, Beta-1 metal-binding globulin, Siderophilin, TF|
|Target/Specificity||Reacts with the N-terminal domain of human transferrin, Kd = 2.85 x 10-11 M. Does not cross-react with mouse, rabbit, or bovine transferrin, nor with human lactoferrin.|
|Reconstitution & Storage||Short term 4°C, long term aliquot and store at -20°C, avoid freeze thaw cycles.|
|Precautions||TF / Transferrin Antibody (N-Terminus) is for research use only and not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|Function||Transferrins are iron binding transport proteins which can bind two Fe(3+) ions in association with the binding of an anion, usually bicarbonate. It is responsible for the transport of iron from sites of absorption and heme degradation to those of storage and utilization. Serum transferrin may also have a further role in stimulating cell proliferation.|
|Tissue Location||Expressed by the liver and secreted in plasma.|
