Characteristics of the protein coding sequence
FERRITIN 1
EN
FERRITIN 1 (FER1) encodes a chloroplastic protein with ferroxidase activity that stores iron in a soluble, non-toxic, readily available form. Ferritins convey tolerance to iron overloading as demonstrated by loss of function mutants with a sensitivity to iron. Mutants also demonstrated smaller leaves, increased susceptibility to oxidative stress, and decreased carbon dioxide fixation.
