Could anyone please identify the location in the brain that transferrin
receptors are concentrated?  I am reviewing an article regarding the use
of immuno-liposomes, using an mAB for transferrin receptor liked to
pegalayted liposomes, to enhance drug delivery across the BBB.  I recall
that certain area of the brain has a high localization of these receptors
but cannot recall which region it is.

Thank you in advance,
