Gene: TFR2 (transferrin receptor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: TFR2
Name: transferrin receptor 2
Description: Exhibits co-receptor binding activity and transferrin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including iron ion transport; positive regulation of gene expression; and positive regulation of transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the HFE-transferrin receptor complex; external side of plasma membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Implicated in hemochromatosis and hemochromatosis type 3. Biomarker of acute myeloid leukemia.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: HFE3; MGC126368; TFRC2; transferrin receptor protein 2
