Human Ferritin Analyte Overview
Also known as apoferritin, cell proliferation-inducing gene 15 protein, ferritin h subunit, ferritin heavy chain, heavy polypeptide 1, FHC, FTHEC 18.104.22.168, FTHL6MGC104426, PIG15, placenta immunoregulatory factor, PLIF, proliferation-inducing protein 15
Ferritin is the primary intracellular iron storage protein in both prokaryotes and eukaryotes. Its major function is iron homeostasis. Ferritin handles the storage of iron in a soluble, nontoxic state, protecting from both iron deficiency and toxic iron buildup. Small amounts of ferritin are secreted into serum where it also functions as an iron carrier. Plasma ferritin can act as an indirect marker for iron storage.
