Immunogen Purified porcine transferrin.
Clone HTF-14
Isotype IgG1
Specificity The antibody HTF-14 recognizes an epitope located in the N-terminal domain of human serum transferrin, a 77 kDa single polypeptide chain glycoprotein (member of the iron binding family of proteins). It is synthesised in the liver and consists of two domains each having a high affinity reversible binding site for Fe3+.
No Cross-Reactivity Cow (Bovine), Sheep (Ovine), Dog (Canine), Horse (Equine)
Purification Purified from ascites by precipitation methods and ion exchange chromatography.
Purity > 95 % (by SDS-PAGE)
Alternative Name Transferrin (Tf Antibody Abstract)
Background Transferrin is a monomeric glycoprotein of approximately 77 kDa, which serves as an iron-transporter. In normal plasma, transferrin has a concentration of 25-50 µmol / liter, and is usually about one-third saturated with iron, thus providing a large buffering capacity in case of an acute increase in plasma iron levels. Cells take up transferrin-iron complexes (holotransferrin) using transferrin receptor dimers. Upon binding of holotransferrin, the receptor is internalized by clathrin-mediated endocytosis. Acidification of endosomes by vesicular membrane proton pumps leads to dissociation of iron ions, whereas transferrin (apotransferrin) remains associated with its receptor (CD71) and recycles to the cell surface, where apotransferrin is released upon exposure to normal pH. Internalization of labeled transferrin thus represents an usefull approach to study endocytosis. Serum concentration rises in iron deficiency and pregnancy and falls in iron overload, infection and inflammatory conditions. Iron/transferrin complex is essential in haemoglobin synthesis and for certain types of cell division.
Research Area Cardiovascular, Serum/Plasma Proteins, Enzymes, Metabolism
Application Notes Immunohistochemistry (paraffin sections) Recommended dilution: 10 µg/mL
Positive tissue: placentaImmunocytochemistry
Functional Application: The antibody HTF-14 blocks binding of transferrin to the receptor.

Working concentrations should be determined by the investigator.
Restrictions For Research Use only
Concentration 1 mg/mL
Buffer Phosphate buffered saline (PBS) with 15 mM sodium azide, approx. pH 7.4
Preservative Sodium azide
Precaution of Use WARNING: Reagents contain sodium azide. Sodium azide is very toxic if ingested or inhaled. Avoid contact with skin, eyes, or clothing. Wear eye or face protection when handling. If skin or eye contact occurs, wash with copious amounts of water. If ingested or inhaled, contact a physician immediately. Sodium azide yields toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide-containing compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in lead or copper plumbing.
Handling Advice Do not freeze.
Storage 4 °C
Storage Comment Store at 2-8 °C. Do not use after expiration date stamped on vial label.
