Transferrin Receptor / TFRC / CD71 Antibody (FITC), Rabbit MAb, Flow Cytometry

Expression of TFRC (CD71) by stimulated human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Human PBMC were stimulated with immobilized anti-human CD3 antibody (1 μg/ml for coating culture wells; BD Cat. No. 555329), in the presence of recombinant human IL-2

Background

Mouse transferrin receptor protein 1, also known as transferrin receptor, Trfr, p90, CD71 and TFRC, is a single-pass type II membrane protein which belongs to the peptidase M28 family and M28B subfamily. TFRC / CD71 is a membrane-bound protein expressed in larger amounts in proliferating. The specific expression of TFRC can represent a diagnostic tool or a therapeutic target in solid tumours expressing this antigen. Transferrin receptor is necessary for development of erythrocytes and the nervous system. TFRC / CD71 is regulated by cellular iron levels through binding of the iron regulatory proteins, IRP1 and IRP2, to iron-responsive elements in the 3'-UTR. Up-regulated upon mitogenic stimulation. TFRC / CD71 represents a marker of malignant transformation in the pancreas that could be applied as potential diagnostic and therapeutic target.
