Abstract (PDF) 
Graphical Abstract: In this work, Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy was used to highlight the structural differences between the human lactoferrin and human serum transferrin. The results clearly show the structural differences of human lactoferrin and human serum transferrin. The second derivative analysis of the FTIR spectra allows the direct identification of secondary structure components of the human lactoferrin and human serum transferrin.
