Ferritins are the major iron storage protein in the cytoplasm of cells, responsible for regulating levels of intracellular iron. Ferritin genes are widely distributed in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In mammals, ferritin molecules are composed of heavy- (H) and light- (L) chain subunits; amphibian genomes contain three ferritin-type genes (H; middle, M; and L subunits); and teleost genomes to date contain H and M subunits. The objective of this study was to characterize the ferritin H gene… CONTINUE READING
