Lactoferrin (LTF) is a multifunctional protein of the transferrin family. Lactoferrin is a globular glycoprotein with a molecular mass of about 80 kDa that is widely represented in various secretory fluids, such as milk, saliva, tears, and nasal secretions. Lactoferrin is one of the transferrin proteins that transfer iron to the cells and control the level of free iron in the blood and external secretions. Lactoferrin's primary role is to sequester free iron, and in doing so remove essential substrate required for bacterial growth. The lactoferrin receptor plays an important role in the internalization of lactoferrin; it also facilitates absorption of iron ions by lactoferrin. It was shown that gene expression increases with age in the duodenum and decreases in the jejunum.
The antibody is a mouse monoclonal antibody raised against LTF. It has been selected for its ability to recognize LTF in immunohistochemical staining and western blotting.
