Importance of ironIron is quantitatively the most importantbioactive element in human enzymology withroles in: Oxygen transport and storage Oxidative metabolism Cellular growth and proliferation 4. Haem - Proteins Hemoglobin 70% Myoglobin 5% Tissue specific haem proteins Cytochromes Eg: P450 Oxygenases Hydroxylases Peroxidase Catalase Ribonucleotide reductase Aconitase 5. Proteins of iron TRANSPORT & STORAGE TRANSFERRIN: Single chain glycoprotein with twoiron binding sites, responsible for iron transportin plasma and extra-cellular fluid TRANSFERRIN RECEPTOR: Transmembraneglycoprotein with two transferrin binding sites FERRITIN: Spherical protein of 24 subunits whichbinds 4500 atoms of iron IRP: four domine cluster protein which co-ordinates translocational regualtion of ironproteins 6.
