Spectroscopic Studies on the Binding of Iron, Terbium, and Zinc by Apoferritin Amyra Treffry and Pauline M. Harrison Department of Biochemistry, The University, Sheffield, U.K. ABSTRACT Ultraviolet difference spectroscopy has been used to study Fe (II11`apoferritin complexes formed after addition of Cited by: Earlier crystallographic and spectroscopic studies had shown that horse spleen apoferritin was capable of removing the metal ion from hemin (Fe(III)-protoporphyrin IX) [G.

Précigoux, J. Yariv, B. A combined spectroscopic methodology of circular dichroism (CD), magnetic CD (MCD), and variable-temperature, variable-field (VTVH) MCD has been applied to define the wild-type (WT) substrate site in M ferritin under biologically relevant solution conditions, 24 enabling its comparison to the binuclear non-heme iron cofactor sites.

8−10,24 CD and MCD spectroscopies probe the ligand-field Cited by: 5. Apoferritin from horse spleen was the first protein cage studied and used as a template for the synthesis of inorganic nanoparticles.

Apoferritin has found extensive use in the synthesis of numerous metallic nanoparticles including Pd 2+, Cu 2+, Fe 2+, Co 2+, Cr 3+, Ni 2+, Mn 2+, Cd 2+, and Zn 2+. Ferritin is a universal intracellular protein that stores iron and releases it in a controlled fashion. The protein is produced by almost all living organisms, including archaea, bacteria, algae, higher plants, and animals.

In humans, it acts as a buffer against iron deficiency and iron overload. Ferritin is found in most tissues as a cytosolic protein, but small amounts are secreted into the InterPro: IPR The complete amino acid sequence of human spleen apoferritin has been determined. and spectroscopic studies of ferritin led to the proposal that the oxidation/translocation path involves a.

Mössbauer spectroscopic and magnetic measurements have been made on a novel magnetic protein produced by the controlled reconstitution of ferritin.

The data indicate that the predominant mineral form in the iron-containing cores is maghemite (γ Cited by: Gel Filtration Markers Kit for Protein Molecular Weig, Da.

1 Product Result. Apoferritin is a gel filtration molecular weight marker that can be used in gel filtration chromatography and protein chromatography. Apoferritin has the ability to demetallate hemin and to metallate protoporphyrin IX. Apoferritin from equine spleen.

The approximate molecular weight of this product isWhat is the concentration of. Apoferritin from horse spleen can be reversibly dissociated at pH 2 or in M G-HCl (pH ).

Reconstitution of the native icositetramer in M TEA buffer (pH ) in the presence of 1 mM EDTA and 3 mM dithioerythritol leads to yields higher than 80%. To monitor the kinetic mechanism, intrinsic fluorescence, far-UV circular dichroism, and covalent cross-linking with glutaraldehyde were Cited by: Previous studies showed that schistosomiasis and malaria and are the main risk factors for anemia in young adults13 % of pupils in group I and 96% of group II students said ferritin as a storage form of iron, while students in both groups used apoferritin as a storage form.

Ferritin and apoferritin (l-3) from horse spleen were made available to the writer by Dr. Michaelis and Dr. Granick of The Rockefeller Institut>e for Medical Research.

(2, 3), although recent studies suggest that some variation in subunit constitution may be present (4). Relatively little is known about the primary structure or conformation of the subunits.

A high LY helix content is known to be present (2, 5) and a few side chain modification studies have been reported (). apoferritin: [ ap″o-fer´ĭ-tin ] an apoprotein that can bind many atoms of iron per molecule to form ferritin, the form in which iron is stored in the liver and other tissues.

A di‐iron catalytic center is key to the functioning of ferritin, the ubiquitous iron‐storage protein of life [].Unlike the di‐iron cofactor site in dioxygen‐activating enzymes, the di‐iron center Cited by: 4. Apoferritin definition, a homogeneous protein, found especially in the intestinal mucosa and the liver, that interacts with a ferric hydroxide-ferric phosphate complex to form ferritin.

Although many excellent approaches have been proposed, most require elaborate skills and labor-intensive techniques. In this work, we report that phenothiazine compounds such as thionine chloride (TC) are potential molecular adhesives for protein by: nm nanoceria particles are successfully encapsulated into the apoferritin cavity via a dissociation–reconstruction route.

The apoferritin coating not only improves the biocompatibility and changes the cellular uptake route of nanoceria, but also manipulates the Cited by:   The iron storage protein ferritin consists of a spherical polypeptide shell (apoferritin) surrounding a 6-nanometer inorganic core of the hydrated iron oxide ferrihydrite (5Fe2OH2O).

Previous studies have shown that the in vitro reconstitution of apoferritin yields mineral cores essentially identical to those of the native proteins.

The data indicate that the predominant mineral form in the iron-containing cores is maghemite (y-Fe) rather than magnetite (Fe)' 1. Introduction. For example, previous studies using anionic nanoparticles report iron levels of 10 pg per cell after a minute incubation period with 5 mM iron.

38 In comparison, incubation with a cationized magnetoferritin solution containing μM protein corresponds to incubation with approximately mM iron and also yields approximately 10 pg of iron Cited by: 1.

PbS nanocrystals entrapped in the hollow core of apoferritin protein cages are synthesized in aqueous solution by both reassembly and nanoreactor routes. In both cases, apoferritin limits the size of the PbS quantum dot it can encapsulate to 8 nm and provides a route to the creation of a stable near‐infrared fluorescent composite.

hand, apoferritin molecules are all identical and have a roughly spherically symmetric structure giving rise to Bessel-like function oscillations in the SAXS data The difference between holoferritin and apoferritin can be seen in Figs. 1 a and 1 b. Also shown in Fig. 1 c is the SAXS data from ferritin to which was added 90 mM CdCl 2 salt.

X-ray diffraction and TEM results demonstrated that the magnetic doxorubicin encapsulation into the apoferritin and its conjugation with magnetic particles was investigated by capillary.

Studies are also being conducted to better understand its utility in chemo-enzymatic syntheses (Bolt et al.and Calveras et al. ), its interactions with other cellular proteins (Forlemu et al. ), and its reaction intermediates (St.-Jean et al. The iron storage protein ferritin consists of a spherical polypeptide shell (apoferritin) surrounding a 6-nanometer inorganic core of the hydrated iron oxide ferrihydrite (5Fe 2 O 3 9H 2 O).

Previous studies have shown that the in vitro reconstitution of apoferritin yields mineral cores essentially identical to those of the native proteins.
