Caption: Metabolic enzyme. Computer artwork of aconitase (blue), in complex with ferritin messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA, red). Aconitase is involved in the citric acid cycle but here it is performing a secondary function as an iron regulatory protein (IRP). It does this by binding to ferritin mRNA, which prevents translation into the protein product (ferritin). Ferritin acts like a sponge and helps to protect cells from the toxic effects of excess iron.
