Mobilisation of iron from peritoneal rat macrophages by desferrioxamine.


The amount of radioiron released from rat peritoneal macrophages after phagocytosis of 59Fe labelled erythrocytes can be enhanced by addition of desferrioxamine. The effect is dose dependent and the iron chelated by desferrioxamine appears to be at the expense of ferritin. However, desferrioxamine does not appear to chelate iron already incorporated into… (More)
