Ferritin, heavy polypeptide 1

apoferritin, FTH1, FTH
This gene encodes the heavy subunit of ferritin, the major intracellular iron storage protein in prokaryotes and eukaryotes. It is composed of 24 subunits of the heavy and light ferritin chains. Variation in ferritin subunit composition may affect the rates of iron uptake and release in different tissues. A major function of ferritin is the storage of iron in a soluble and nontoxic state. Defects in ferritin proteins are associated with several neurodegenerative diseases. This gene has multiple pseudogenes. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants have been observed, but their biological validity has not been determined. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

Obesity is associated with gene expression and imaging markers of iron accumulation in skeletal muscle.
Fernández-Real et al., Girona, Spain. In J Clin Endocrinol Metab, Feb 2016
Design, setting, patients and outcome measures: Markers of iron accumulation were measured in 3 different territories: Iron gene markers (TFRC1, TF, SLC11A2, FTL, FTH1 and SLC40A1) were studied in abdominal rectus abdominis (cohort 1, n=26) and quadriceps (cohort 2, n= 13) muscle using real time PCR, while paravertebral muscle R2* signal (as surrogate of iron content) (cohort 3, n=43) was evaluated by means of MRI.

Kim et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Small, Feb 2016
The metallic NPs, composed of Au, Pd, or Pt, are encapsulated within a protein cage, i.e., apoferritin, to form unagglomerated monodispersed particles with diameters of less than 5 nm.
Whole genome and normalized mRNA sequencing reveal genetic status of TK6, WTK1, and NH32 human B-lymphoblastoid cell lines.
Dobrovolsky et al., United States. In Mutat Res Genet Toxicol Environ Mutagen, Feb 2016
These include a single base deletion mutation in the ferritin heavy chain gene (FTH1) resulting in a frame shift and protein truncation in TK6 that impairs iron metabolism.
Hierarchical Organization of Organic Dyes and Protein Cages into Photoactive Crystals.
Kostiainen et al., Finland. In Acs Nano, Jan 2016
Toward this end, a hierarchical organization process has been designed in which (a) a supramolecular complex is formed between octacationic zinc Pc (1) and a tetraanionic pyrene (2) derivatives, driven by electrostatic and π-π interactions, and (b) the resulting tetracationic complex acts as a molecular glue that binds to the outer surface anionic patches of the apoferritin (aFt) protein cage, inducing cocrystallization.
Coaxial electrospinning of WO3 nanotubes functionalized with bio-inspired Pd catalysts and their superior hydrogen sensing performance.
Kim et al., Taejŏn, South Korea. In Nanoscale, Jan 2016
In addition, catalytic Pd nanoparticles (NPs) were synthesized using bio-inspired protein cages, i.e., apoferritin, and uniformly dispersed within the shell solution and subsequently on the WO3 NTs.
Electron microscopy: Ultrastable gold substrates for electron cryomicroscopy.
Passmore et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Science, 2015
With this improvement, we determine the structure of apoferritin, a smooth octahedral shell of α-helical subunits that is particularly difficult to solve by electron microscopy.
Plant ferritin--a source of iron to prevent its deficiency.
Zielińska-Dawidziak, Poznań, Poland. In Nutrients, 2014
This protein captures huge amounts of iron ions inside the apoferritin shell and isolates them from the environment.
Selective VPS34 inhibitor blocks autophagy and uncovers a role for NCOA4 in ferritin degradation and iron homeostasis in vivo.
Murphy et al., Cambridge, United States. In Nat Cell Biol, 2014
NCOA4 directly binds ferritin heavy chain-1 (FTH1) to target the iron-binding ferritin complex with a relative molecular mass of 450,000 to autolysosomes following starvation or iron depletion.
Coupling heme and iron metabolism via ferritin H chain.
Soares et al., Portugal. In Antioxid Redox Signal, 2014
While heme catabolism by heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) prevents programmed cell death, this cytoprotective effect requires the co-expression of ferritin H (heart/heavy) chain (FTH), which controls the pro-oxidant effect of labile Fe released from the protoporphyrin IX ring of heme.
Problems in obtaining perfect images by single-particle electron cryomicroscopy of biological structures in amorphous ice.
McMullan et al., Cambridge, United Kingdom. In Microscopy (oxf), 2013
In this review, we compare the contrast of experimental electron cryomicroscopy images of two smaller molecular assemblies, namely apoferritin and beta-galactosidase, with that expected from perfect simulated images calculated from their known X-ray structures.
