Iron uptake in relation to transferrin degradation in brain and other tissues of rats.

Abstract

The possibility that iron uptake by the brain involves transcytosis of the iron-transferrin complex across the brain capillaries, followed by degradation of the transferrin (Tf) within the brain, was investigated using diferric 125I-[59Fe]Tf and [59Fe]Tf coupled to 125I-tyramine cellobiose (TC). The radiolabeled catabolic products of proteins labeled with… (More)
