BACKGROUND Transferrins are a group of iron-binding proteins including serum transferrin, lactoferrin and ovotransferrin. SCOPE OF REVIEW The structures of transferrins are discussed. GENERAL SIGNIFICANCE The typical transferrin molecules are folded into two homologous lobes. X-ray crystallography revealed that each lobe is further divided into two similarly sized domains, and that an iron-binding site is contained within the inter-domain cleft. The six iron coordination sites are occupied… CONTINUE READING
