Detection of Human TfR2 by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human liver tissue and K562 human chronic myelogenous leukemia cell line. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human TfR2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3120) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF018). A specific band was detected for TfR2 at approximately 100 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.
Detection of Human TfR2 by Simple WesternTM. Simple Western lane view shows lysates of human liver tissue, loaded at 0.2 mg/mL. A specific band was detected for TfR2 at approximately 104 kDa (as indicated) using 10 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human TfR2 Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB3120). This experiment was conducted under reducing conditions and using the 12-230 kDa separation system. Non-specific interaction with the 230 kDa Simple Western standard may be seen with this antibody.

Transferrin Receptor 2 (TfR2) is an iron-binding protein that is homologous to the transferrin receptor. Lack of active TfR2 has been associated with a rare form of hemochromatosis. The TfR2 alpha isoform is a type 2 transmembrane protein that is expressed in the liver and modulates hepcidin production in response to iron. It forms a 215 kDa disulfide-linked homodimer that is presumably glycated. The TfR2 beta isoform lacks the intracellular, transmembrane and part of the extracellular regions and is expressed ubiquitously. The extracellular portion of human TfR2 shares 86% aa identity with mouse.
