Detection of Human Transferrin by Western Blot. Western blot shows lysates of human liver tissue. PVDF membrane was probed with 2 µg/mL of Mouse Anti-Human Transferrin Monoclonal Antibody (Catalog # MAB5746) followed by HRP-conjugated Anti-Mouse IgG Secondary Antibody (Catalog # HAF007). A specific band was detected for Transferrin at approximately 90 kDa (as indicated). This experiment was conducted under non-reducing conditions and using Immunoblot Buffer Group 1.

Transferrin, also known as serotransferrin and siderophilin, is an 80 kDa secreted glycoprotein that binds two Fe (3+) ions, transporting them from sites of absorption and heme degradation to those of storage and utilization. It is a member of the Transferrin family of proteins. Human Transferrin is synthesized as a 698 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 19 aa signal sequence and a 679 aa mature chain. The mature chain consists of two Transferrin-like domains, two high-affinity iron binding sites, one potential site for O-linked glycosylation, and two potential sites for N-linked glycosylation. Human Transferrin is 73% aa identical to mouse and rat Transferrin.
