To investigate the effects of maternal dietary protein restriction on offspring Fe metabolism, twenty-four second-parity Landrace×Yorkshire sows were randomly allocated to standard-protein (SP) and low-protein (LP) groups. The SP sows were fed diets containing 15 and 18 % crude protein throughout pregnancy and lactation, respectively, whereas the LP sows were subjected to 50 % dietary protein restriction. Offspring birth weight was not affected, but the body weight at weaning (P=0·06) and average daily gain (P=0·01) of the female piglets were significantly decreased...

INTRODUCTION: Sickle Cell Anaemia (SCA) is one of the commonest haemoglobinopathies due to a point mutation (A→T) of the β-globin gene. Out of five haplotypes, the Arab-Indian haplotype present in India is one of the least severe phenotype and least studied also. It is characterized by lifelong haemolytic anaemia requiring red cell transfusion leading to iron overload. In contrast, there is very high incidence of deficiency of iron, folic acid and vitamin B12. AIM: Our objective was to access the Iron status of SCA patients and to find its correlation with various parameters like red cell transfusion, haemolysis and serum hepcidin...

Retention of iron in tissue macrophages via upregulation of hepcidin (HAMP) and downregulation of the iron exporter ferroportin (FPN) is thought to participate in the establishment of anemia of inflammation after infection. However, an upregulation of FPN has been proposed to limit macrophages iron access to intracellular pathogens. Therefore, we studied the iron homeostasis and in particular the regulation of FPN after infection with Salmonella enterica serovar Typhimurium in mice presenting tissue macrophages with high iron (AcB61), basal iron (A/J and wild-type mice), or low iron (Hamp knock out, Hamp(-/-)) levels...

Mitochondrial dysfunction and oxidative damage, often accompanied by elevated intracellular iron levels, are pathophysiological features in a number of neurodegenerative processes. The question arises as to whether iron dyshomeostasis is a consequence of mitochondrial dysfunction. Here we have evaluated the role of Iron Regulatory Protein 1 (IRP1) in the death of SH-SY5Y dopaminergic neuroblastoma cells subjected to mitochondria complex I inhibition. We found that complex I inhibition was associated with increased levels of transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1) and iron uptake transporter divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1), and decreased levels of iron efflux transporter Ferroportin 1 (FPN1), together with increased (55)Fe uptake activity and an increased cytoplasmic labile iron pool...

Iron is required for hemoglobin production, and it plays a key role during erythropoiesis. Systemic iron homeostasis is mainly negatively regulated by the peptide hormone hepcidin, coded by the gene HAMP. Hepcidin excess may cause iron deficiency, iron-restricted erythropoiesis and anemia. Conversely, hepcidin insufficiency leads to iron overload and oxidative damage in multiple tissues. During regulation of hepcidin synthesis, multiple promoter elements in the HAMP gene respond to variable signaling pathways corresponding to different extracellular situations...

Emerging evidence suggests that pulmonary iron accumulation is implicated in a spectrum of chronic lung diseases. However, the mechanism(s) involved in pulmonary iron deposition and its role in the in vivo pathogenesis of lung diseases remains unknown. Here we show that a point mutation in the murine ferroportin gene, which causes hereditary hemochromatosis type 4 (Slc40a1(C326S)), increases iron levels in alveolar macrophages, epithelial cells lining the conducting airways and lung parenchyma, and in vascular smooth muscle cells...

Multiple human diseases ensue from a hereditary or acquired deficiency of iron-transporting protein function that diminishes transmembrane iron flux in distinct sites and directions. Because other iron-transport proteins remain active, labile iron gradients build up across the corresponding protein-deficient membranes. Here we report that a small-molecule natural product, hinokitiol, can harness such gradients to restore iron transport into, within, and/or out of cells. The same compound promotes gut iron absorption in DMT1-deficient rats and ferroportin-deficient mice, as well as hemoglobinization in DMT1- and mitoferrin-deficient zebrafish...

This experiment was conducted to investigate the effect of iron source on Fe absorption and the gene expression of divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) and ferroportin 1 (FPN1) in the ligated duodenal loops of broilers. The in situ ligated duodenal loops from Fe-deficient broiler chicks (28-d-old) were perfused with Fe solutions containing 0 to 14.33 mmol Fe/L from 1 of the following: Fe sulfate (FeSO∙7HO), Fe methionine with weak chelation strength (Fe-Met W; chelation strength is expressed as quotient of formation [Q] value, Q = 1...

BACKGROUND & AIMS: Previous studies have suggested that iron absorption in suckling mammals is refractory to stimuli that normally would decrease absorption in adults. To better understand the regulation of iron absorption during suckling, we have characterized the relationship between hepcidin, ferroportin, and iron absorption at this crucial stage of life. METHODS: To determine whether ferroportin is involved in iron absorption during suckling, absorption was measured in intestine-specific ferroportin knockout mice...

BACKGROUND: The epidermis shows a reverse iron gradient from the basal layer to the stratum corneum and consequently, little epidermal intracellular iron is lost by desquamation. OBJECTIVE: To clarify the underlying mechanism of iron salvage. METHODS: We first used immunohistochemistry and mRNA quantification to demonstrate the distinctive expression pattern of iron metabolism molecules. The obtained results were confirmed using normal human epidermal keratinocytes (NHEKs) during in vitro differentiation...

Previous studies have indicated that hepcidin, which can regulate iron efflux by binding to ferroportin-1 (FPN1) and inducing its internalization and degradation, acts as the critical factor in the regulation of iron metabolism. However, it is unknown whether hepcidin is involved in acute renal ischemia/reperfusion injury (IRI). In this study, an IRI rat model was established via right renal excision and blood interruption for 45 min in the left kidney, and iron metabolism indexes were examined to investigate the change in iron metabolism and to analyze the role of hepcidin during IRI...

Ceruloplasmin (Cp) is one of the most complex multicopper oxidase enzymes and plays an essential role in the metabolism of iron in mammals. Ferrous ion supplied by the ferroportin exporter is converted by Cp to ferric ion that is accepted by plasma metallo-chaperone transferrin. Study of the enzyme at the atomic and molecular level has been hampered by the lack of a suitable ferrous substrate. We have developed the classic chromophoric complex Fe(II)Hx(Tar)2 (H2Tar, 4-(2-thiazolylazo)resorcinol; x = 0-2; overall charge omitted) as a robust substrate for evaluation of the ferroxidase function of Cp and related enzymes...

The significant positive correlation between ghrelin and iron and hepcidin levels in the plasma of children with iron deficiency anemia prompted us to hypothesize that ghrelin may affect iron metabolism. Here, we investigated the effects of fasting or ghrelin on the expression of hepcidin, ferroportin 1 (Fpn1), transferrin receptor 1 (TfR1), ferritin light chain (Ft-L) proteins and ghrelin, and also hormone secretagogue receptor 1 alpha (GHSR1α) and ghrelin O-acyltransferase (GOAT) mRNAs in the spleen and/or macrophage...

Anemia of chronic inflammation (ACI) is a frequently diagnosed anemia and portends an independently increased morbidity and poor outcome associated with multiple underlying diseases. The pathophysiology of ACI is multifactorial, resulting from the effects of inflammatory cytokines which both directly and indirectly suppress erythropoiesis. Recent advances in molecular understanding of iron metabolism provide strong evidence that immune mediators, such as IL-6, lead to hepcidin-induced hypoferremia, iron sequestration, and decreased iron availability for erythropoiesis...

BACKGROUND: Hepcidin plays a central role in iron homeostasis and erythropoiesis. Neutralizing hepcidin with a monoclonal antibody (mAb) may prevent ferroportin internalization, restore iron efflux from cells, and allow transferrin-mediated iron transport to the bone marrow. This multicenter, phase 1 study evaluated the safety, pharmacokinetics (PK), pharmacodynamics (PD), and efficacy of a fully humanized mAb (LY2787106) with high affinity for hepcidin in cancer patients with anemia...

Ovarian cancer is a lethal malignancy that has not seen a major therapeutic advance in over 30 years. We demonstrate that ovarian cancer exhibits a targetable alteration in iron metabolism. Ferroportin (FPN), the iron efflux pump, is decreased, and transferrin receptor (TFR1), the iron importer, is increased in tumor tissue from patients with high grade but not low grade serous ovarian cancer. A similar profile of decreased FPN and increased TFR1 is observed in a genetic model of ovarian cancer tumor-initiating cells (TICs)...

Daniel F Wallace
Iron is an essential element in biology, required for numerous cellular processes. Either too much or too little iron can be detrimental, and organisms have developed mechanisms for balancing iron within safe limits. In mammals there are no controlled mechanisms for the excretion of excess iron, hence body iron homeostasis is regulated at the sites of absorption, utilisation and recycling. This review will discuss the discoveries that have been made in the past 20 years into advancing our understanding of iron homeostasis and its regulation...

Iron is an essential element for all living organisms, but produces toxic oxidants. Thus, iron homeostasis is tightly regulated in mammals. Hepcidin-25 (hepcidin) has emerged as a molecule that regulates iron metabolism. Binding of hepcidin to its receptor, ferroportin, inhibits intestinal iron absorption and iron efflux from hepatocytes and macrophages. Decreased hepcidin enhances iron absorption and efflux. Hepcidin could be predictive of iron status and the response to iron supplementation or erythropoietin-stimulating agents...
