Receptor-mediated heme uptake from hemopexin by human erythroleukemia K562 cells.


Using human erythroleukemia K562 cells, existence of receptors for hemopexin has been investigated. Hemopexin was bound to the cells in saturable, time- and temperature-dependent manner. The cells exhibited approximately 8,400 binding sites/cell for hemopexin and apohemopexin. The dissociation constants (Kd) for hemopexin and apohemopexin were 4.79 nM and… (More)
