Ferritin is a developmentally regulated nuclear protein of avian corneal epithelial cells.


Previously, we generated monoclonal antibodies against chicken corneal cells (Zak, N. B., and Linsenmayer, T. F. (1983) Dev. Biol. 99, 373). We have now observed that one group of these antibodies reacts with a developmentally regulated component of corneal epithelial cell nuclei. This component is the heavy chain of ferritin, as determined by analyses of… (More)
