BACKGROUND Plant and animal ferritins stem from a common ancestor, but plant ferritins exhibit various features that are different from those of animal ferritins. Phytoferritin is observed in plastids (e.g., chloroplasts in leaves, amyloplasts in tubers and seeds), whereas animal ferritin is largely found in the cytoplasm. The main difference in structure between plant and animal ferritins is the two specific domains (TP and EP) at the N-terminal sequence of phytoferritin, which endow… CONTINUE READING
