The membrane transferrin receptor-mediated endocytosis or internalization of the complex of transferrin bound iron and the transferrin receptor is the major route of cellular iron uptake. This efficient cellular uptake pathway has been exploited for the site-specific delivery not only of anticancer drugs and proteins, but also of therapeutic genes into(More)
Ceruloplasmin (CP) is essential for brain iron homeostasis. However, its precise function in brain iron transport has not been definitely determined. In this study, we investigated the effects of soluble CP on iron influx and efflux in primary neuronal culture from the midbrain (the substantia nigra and striatum) and the hippocampus. Our data showed that(More)
