Transferrin less the iron molecule. Like transferrin, apotransferrin has a physiological role in the transportation and distribution of iron among the body organs. It is also an important transport factor used in defined culture media. Purified to have less than 0.01% iron and an iron-binding capacity of 1.25 ug/mg. Dissolves in water at 10 mg per ml.
