  • Previously, we have demonstrated an apoptosis-inducing activity of an acidic, H-chain-rich isoferritin secreted from primary rat hepatocytes in vitro. Because this proapoptotic property may be responsible for the growth-inhibitory and immunosuppressive effects described for certain ferritin species, we aimed to address the mechanism by which ferritin can trigger cell death. Suggesting a pivotal role for iron, iron chelation by desferrioxamine significantly abrogates ferritin-mediated apoptosis… CONTINUE READING
