Mitochondrial ferritin: a new player in iron metabolism.


Mitochondrial ferritin (MtF) is a novel H-type ferritin encoded by an intronless gene on chromosome 5q23.1. The protein is synthesized as a precursor of about 30 kDa that is targeted to mitochondria by a leader sequence of 60 amino acids. This leader is proteolytically removed inside the mitochondria and the resulting 22 kDa subunit forms typical ferritin… (More)
