Protein

Ferritin light chain, oocyte isoform

Gene
N/A
Organism
Xenopus laevis (African clawed frog)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Important for iron homeostasis. Iron is taken up in the ferrous form and deposited as ferric hydroxides after oxidation (By similarity).By similarity

Miscellaneous

There are three types of ferritin subunits in amphibia: L, M and H chains. M and H chains are fast mineralizing; the L chain is very slow mineralizing (By similarity).By similarity
