Abstract

In plasma, avian egg white, and various body fluids there can be found a group of closely related proteins that are characterized by their ability to bind metals, notably iron. In plasma, the protein is commonly called transferrin (also siderophilin,1 β1 metal-combining globulin2). In egg white and in milk, the names ovotransferrin (conalbumin3) and lactotransferrin are used for the respective proteins, although these two forms of transferrin probably serve no physiological iron-transfer function. Iron-binding proteins in other body fluids, in leukocytes, and in macrophages are similar to transferrin or lactotransferrin and are referred to by these names. With the awareness that differences in properties and function exist between transferrins produced in different tissues, the present terminology is considered unsatisfactory. The matter is unresolved, and in this chapter, where necessary, transferrins will be related to the relevant fluid or tissue.
