Transferrin uptake by bone marrow macrophages is independent of the degree of iron saturation.


The uptake of transferrin by macrophages was studied in relation to the degree of iron saturation. Rat bone marrow derived macrophages were incubated with transferrin labelled with 59Fe and 3H. At 37 degrees C the amount of 59Fe incorporated by macrophages was dependent on the time of incubation. 3H labelled transferrin was found degraded in the… (More)
