• receptor-transferrin
  • The cytoplasmic domain is necessary for clustering of the receptor-transferrin complex leading to the formation of coated pits in the cell membrane and subsequent endocytosis (Iacopetta et al 1988, Rothenberger et al 1987). (ifcc.org)
  • affinity
  • Anyway, transferrin binds to a number of different metals, but its highest affinity is for ferric iron. (madsci.org)
  • Transferrin has a molecular weight of around 80 kDa and contains two specific high-affinity Fe(III) binding sites. (wikipedia.org)
  • The affinity of transferrin for Fe(III) is extremely high (association constant is 1020 M−1 at pH 7.4) but decreases progressively with decreasing pH below neutrality. (wikipedia.org)
  • globulin
  • In nephrotic syndrome, urinary loss of transferrin, along with other serum proteins such as thyroxine-binding globulin, gammaglobulin, and anti-thrombin III, can manifest as iron-resistant microcytic anemia. (wikipedia.org)
  • laboratory
  • a calculated laboratory value, the sum of carbohydrate-deficient transferrin and gamma-glutamyltransferase that is useful in assessing long-term ethanol exposure. (drugs.com)
  • human
  • Abcam's Tranferrin Human in vitro ELISA (Enzyme-Linked Immunosorbent Assay) kit is designed for the quantitative measurement of Transferrin in urine, milk saliva, CSF and cell culture supernatants. (abcam.com)
  • Get results in 90 minutes with Human Transferrin ELISA Kit ( ab187391 ) from our SimpleStep ELISA ® range. (abcam.com)
  • Synthetic peptide (the amino acid sequence is considered to be commercially sensitive) corresponding to Human Transferrin Receptor aa 1-100. (abcam.com)
  • Carbohydrate
  • These are referred to as carbohydrate-deficient transferrins. (wikipedia.org)
  • These carbohydrate-deficient transferrins can be measured in the bloodstream, and are an important marker for alcohol abuse. (wikipedia.org)
  • Carbohydrate-deficient transferrin is elevated in the blood of heavy alcoholism but raised levels can also be found in a number of medical conditions. (wikipedia.org)
  • Used with other tests, such as gamma glutamyl transferase (GGT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and alanine aminotransferase (ALT), carbohydrate-deficient transferrin can be a useful tool in identifying problem drinking, such as alcohol abuse or alcoholism. (wikipedia.org)
