Nramp1 (natural resistance-associated macrophage protein) controls innate immunity and encodes a transporter of unknown function. Here we describe an antibody to Nramp1 displaying immunoreactivity towards a mature heavily glycosylated polypeptide of 90-100 kDa and a precursor form of 45 kDa in macrophages. Ectopic expression of the Nramp1 cDNA in COS-1 cells demonstrates that Nramp1 modulates cellular iron levels following loading with low molecular weight iron chelates. Surprisingly, Nramp1… CONTINUE READING
