Mammalian ferritins consist of 24 subunits made up of two types of poly-peptide chains, ferritin heavy chain and ferritin light chain, which each have unique functions. Ferritin heavy chains catalyze the first step in iron storage, the oxidation of FeII, whereas ferritin light chains promote the nucleation of ferrihydrite, enabling storage of FeIII. The most prominent role of mamma-lian ferritins is to provide iron-buffering capacity to cells. In addition to iron buffering, heavy chain ferritin is also involved in the regulation of thymidine biosynthesis via increased expression of cytoplasmic serine hydroxymethyltransferase, which is a limiting factor in thymidylate synthesis in MCF-7 cells. Light chain ferritin is involved in cataracts by at least two mechanisms: hereditary hyperferritinemia cataract syndrome, in which light chain ferritin is overexpressed; and oxidative stress, an important factor in the development of aging-related cataracts.

Has this antibody been tested for Flow cytometry? At SCBT or any other published literature?
Asked by: sbagla
Thank you for your question. The unconjugated antibody has not yet been tested in that application. The conjugated primary antibody is recommended and warrantied for flow cytometry (FCM), however we are still gathering data to show on our website. Check back for updates!

Did you teste this antibody for detection of mouse Fth? Although it is recomended, I would like to know if it was actually tested.
Asked by: dlcosta83
Thank you for your question. Ferritin heavy chain Antibody (B-12): sc-376594 is recommended for detection of ferritin heavy chain of mouse, rat and human origin by WB, IP, IF and ELISA and has been established for those species and applications in our labs. We base our recommendations on these tests. The antibody has also been used successfully with murine samples in a recent publication: PMID 30935115.

I wonder how was this antibody validated to not cross react with Ferritin light chain?, has it been tried to be plotted with ferritin composed out of only light chain (like Ferritin from spleen)?
I would like to use it in sandwich ELISA
Asked by: Zaher
Thank you for your question. This monoclonal antibody is raised against an antigen that is specific to the ferritin heavy chain, and is not expected to cross-react with ferritin light chain. We have not tested this antibody in spleen.

I would like to know if this antibody can be used to detect rat ferritin heavy chain? Thank you.
Asked by: Teddy Chen
Thank you for your question. We have not yet tested our monoclonal antibody, ferritin heavy chain (B-12): sc-376594, to confirm reactivity with rat samples. However, it is very likely that the antibody would react with rat ferritin heavy chain based on roughly 92% sequence identity shared between the immunogen and the published protein sequence for rat (accession: P19132).
We are offering a free 10 µg sample of this antibody for a limited time. Please contact our Technical Service Department if you would like a sample to test the antibody in rat. Please call our European Support office toll-free at 00800 4573 8000, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or contact us by live chat.

What is the recommended secondary to use in Western Blot with this antibody?
Asked by: cjMara
Thank you for your question. We recommend using one our exclusive Mouse IgG Binding Proteins as a secondary detection reagent, Mouse IgG kappa BP HRP, sc-516102. A complete list of available binding proteins is available on our website here:

Does this antibody (B12) cross-react with the ferritin light chain ?
Asked by: sv24
Thank you for your question. We do not expect this antibody, ferritin heavy chain Antibody (B-12): sc-376594, to cross-react with the ferritin light chain. The immunogen used to develop the antibody does not share significant sequence identity with the ferritin light chain protein. However, the exact epitope recognized by this monoclonal antibody has not been determined.
