The mechanism of hepatic iron uptake from native and denatured transferrin and its subcellular metabolism in the liver cell.


Hepatic iron uptake and metabolism were studied by subcellular fractionation of rat liver homogenates after injection of rats with a purified preparation of either native or denatured rat transferrin labelled with 125I and 59Fe. (1) With native transferrin, hepatic 125I content was maximal 5 min after injection and then fell. Hepatic 59Fe content reached… (More)
