Transferrin receptor 1 (TFRC) molecules can be found on the outside of any cell. Transferrin (TF), loaded with iron (holoTF), transports two ferric iron ions through the blood and two holoTFs bind to a TFRC dimer, which mediates cellular uptake of holoTF in a non-iron dependent manner (West et al. 2001).
