Lactoferrin, a pleiotropic and multivalent natural protein, derived from milk of livestock species, has become the center of attention in current scientific era due to its diverse biological activities and functions. It is an 80kDa single chain glycoprotein containing two lobes N-lobe and C-lobe, packed together with the hydrophobic connections with iron binding sites. Lactoferrin can be derived from multiple sources however it has found in higher quantities in milk of livestock animals especially bovine and camel.
