The distribution of ferritin subunit types in porcine tissues.

Academic Article


  • Ferritin was isolated from porcine heart, liver and spleen. Reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography of the ferritin subunits yielded three chromatographic fractions. The relative proportions of the three chromatographic fractions were different for each tissue ferritin. These results support the model which proposes a combination of (at least) two subunit types as the basis for the existence of isoferritins.
