Plant ferritins are key iron-storage proteins that share important structural and functional similarities with animal ferritins. However, specific features characterize plant ferritins, among which are plastid cellular localization and transcriptional regulation by iron. Ferritin synthesis is developmentally and environmentally controlled, in part through the differential expression of the various members of a small gene family. Furthermore, a strict requirement for plant ferritin synthesis… CONTINUE READING
