Bovine Transferrin is an iron-depleted product supplied as a heat-treated, lyophilised powder. Application Notes Bovine Transferrin (APO) is frequently used as a nutrient in cell and microbial culture and as a media supplement in bio-pharmaceutical production. It is a useful transport factor in cell culture work to convey essential metabolites to the cells. Important factor when culturing cells in a defined medium.

Background Information : All cells require iron for the proper uptake of oxygen from their environment. Transferrin, a protein isolated from serum, causes the uptake and transport of iron from culture medium to the cells. This allows proper oxygen uptake and also stimulates growth-related enzyme activity. Iron-saturated transferrin (holo transferrin) is continually recycled after releasing iron and becomes iron-deficient transferrin (apo-transferrin). Choosing which form to use depends upon the culture conditions. In media such as Dulbecco's Modified Eagle's Medium/Ham's Nutrient Mixture F12 (DMEM/F12) that contain high levels of iron salt, using apo-transferrin is preferred.
