Transferrin receptor expression of AML blasts is related to their proliferative potential.


Expression of the transferrin receptor (TfR) was studied on peripheral blood blast cells from 11 patients with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). Using a monoclonal anti-TfR antibody (OKT9) and a polyclonal antibody against surface membrane-bound transferrin, a proportion of blasts from all the patients was found to express receptors for transferrin.
