The Kinetics and Mechanism , of Iron ( II 1 ) Exchange between Chelates and Transferrin


The rate at which iron(II1) is transferred from various chelating agents to the metal-binding sites in human transferrin is a function of the chemical nature of the complexing agent. Although equilibrium concentrations are related to the magnitude of the relative stability constants, the kinetics of transfer appears to be regulated by steric factors. The… (More)
