The trypanosome transferrin receptor (Tf-R) is attached to the membrane by a glycosyl phosphatidylinositol (GPI) carboxy-terminal tail and is expressed exclusively in the membrane and lumen of the flagellar pocket.

Now, they have found that an additional pair of genes that control iron import, called transferrin receptor and HFE, is also important.
Transferrin receptor is significantly over-expressed in many tumor types.
True (A) or false (B)--click on the correct answer: Soluble transferrin receptor levels are low in patients with iron deficiency anaemia.
Transferrin receptors Transferrin receptor (TfR), the binding site of Tf on the cell, has two types; namely TfRI and TfR2.
2,6) Ferritin and soluble transferrin receptors are probably the best biomarkers for the assessment of iron status in the absence of inflammation, but interpretation in the presence of inflammation and malignancy is difficult.
When intracellular iron concentration is low, an iron regulatory protein inhibits the synthesis of apoferritin and promotes the synthesis of transferrin receptor.
Several proteins mediating iron uptake into cells have been identified, including the ubiquitously expressed transferrin receptor 1, which binds iron complexed to transferrin (31); transferrin receptor 2, the expression of which is restricted to hepatocytes, duodenal crypt cells, and erythroid precursors; divalent metal transporter 1, a H+/divalent metal symporter found in duodenal enterocytes, which mediates uptake of dietary iron (32,33); cubilin, a protein expressed in polarized epithelial cells in the kidney, which mediates endocytosis of iron and transferrin with its coreceptor megalin (34); and the hemoglobin scavenger receptor CD163, which is expressed on the surface of monocytes and macrophages and receives plasma hemoglobin bound to haptoglobin.
