The 126 kDa Iron-Regulated Protein of Listeria Monocytogenes Is Not a Transferrin Binding Protein

FEMS Microbiol Lett. 1994 Oct 15;123(1-2):119-23. doi: 10.1111/j.1574-6968.1994.tb07210.x.

Abstract

It has been reported that a 126 kDa protein of Listeria monocytogenes binds human transferrin. It is evident from results presented here that this is not so and that the observation of others resulted from interaction of this 126 kDa protein with streptavidin.
