Descriptor transferrina
Entry term(s) siderofilina
Scope note: Globulina beta 1 que se une al hierro que es sintetizada en el HÍGADO y se segrega a la sangre. Desempeña un papel central en el transporte de HIERRO a través de la circulación. En los humanos existe una variedad de isoformas de transferrina, incluidas algunas que se consideran marcadores de estados patológicos específicos.

Scope note: An iron-binding beta1-globulin that is synthesized in the LIVER and secreted into the blood. It plays a central role in the transport of IRON throughout the circulation. A variety of transferrin isoforms exist in humans, including some that are considered markers for specific disease states.
