Abstract

The anaerobic binding of Fe2+ to apo and holo Mammalian ferritin has been studied in the pH range from 6.0 to 10.0. Mossbauer spectroscopy of samples in which the added Fe 2+ is enriched in Fe-57 shows that the Fe2+ ions bind to the ferritin core and exchange electrons with Fe3+ ions in the core.
