Human Transferrin is a plasma protein for iron ion delivery. Human Transferrin is a glycoprotein with homologous N-terminal and C-terminal iron binding domains. Transferrin (TF) is related to other iron binding proteins including lactoferrin. When human transferrin loaded with iron encounters a transferrin receptor on the surface of a cell, it binds to it and is consequently transported into the cell in a vesicle. The cell will acidify the vesicle, causing human transferrin(TF) to release its iron ions. Each human transferrin molecule has the ability to carry two iron ions in the ferric form (Fe3+).

Human Transferrin levels may be checked in iron deficiency, hemochromatosis and other iron overload disorders. Transferrin is also associated with the innate immune system. Human Transferrin is found in the mucosa and binds iron, thus creating an environment low in free iron, where few bacteria are able to survive.
