Transferrin receptor 1, Human, mAb 3B8 2A1
Human transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1), also designated CD71, is a homodimeric type II membrane glycoprotein of 90-95 kDa. This receptor binds two molecules of the serum iron-transport protein transferrin (Tf) and is internalised into endosomes that are acidified, resulting in the release of iron from Tf. TfR1 is not expressed on resting leukocytes but is upregulated on all proliferating cells upon activation, reflecting the iron dependence of proliferation. In tissues TfR1 is expressed on most dividing cells and on brain capillary endothelium. Expression of TfR1 is down regulated as a result of iron overload. TfR1 shares 45% identity with TfR2.
