Apoprotein

(Science: protein) When a protein can exist as a complex between polypeptide and a second moiety of nonpolypeptide nature, the term apo protein is sometimes used to refer to the molecule divested of the latter. For example: ferritin lacking its ferric hydroxide core may be referred to as apoferritin.
