Table 1 Estimated concentrations of ferritin molecules, derived from measured iron concentrations with the iron load parameter \(N_{\mathrm{Fe}}\) in Fe atoms per ferritin molecule (Fe/Ft) according Eq. 1

From: Iron concentrations in neurons and glial cells with estimates on ferritin concentrations

  Fe conc. (mM) Estimate of ferritin concentration
@1200 Fe/Ft (\(\upmu \hbox {m}^{-3}\)) @1800 Fe/Ft (\(\upmu \hbox {m}^{-3}\)) @2400 Fe/Ft (\(\upmu \hbox {m}^{-3}\))
Neurons 0.57 270 180 130
Astrocytes 1.29 580 390 290
Microglia 1.76 790 530 400
Oligodendrocytes 3.05 1380 920 690
