The application notes include recommended starting dilutions; optimal dilutions/concentrations should be determined by the end user.
1/250. Detects a band of approximately 22 kDa (predicted molecular weight: 27 kDa).
Stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Important for iron homeostasis. Has ferroxidase activity. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation.
Detected in testis and erythroleukemia. Expression is very low or not detectable in brain, colon, heart, kidney, liver, lung, muscle, placental, spleen and small intestine.
Belongs to the ferritin family. Contains 1 ferritin-like diiron domain.
The band observed at 22 kDa could potentially be a cleaved form of Human Ferritin, mitochondrial precursor due to a 49 amino acid transit peptide (SwissProt), which when cleaved gives an expected Mw of 22 kDa.
