Two to Tango: Regulation of Mammalian Iron Metabolism
Disruptions in iron homeostasis from both iron deficiency and overload account for some of the most common human diseases. Iron metabolism is balanced by two regulatory systems, one that functions… Expand
Hepcidin Regulates Cellular Iron Efflux by Binding to Ferroportin and Inducing Its Internalization
MicroRNA-21 contributes to myocardial disease by stimulating MAP kinase signalling in fibroblasts
MicroRNAs comprise a broad class of small non-coding RNAs that control expression of complementary target messenger RNAs. Dysregulation of microRNAs by several mechanisms has been described in… Expand
Balancing Acts Molecular Control of Mammalian Iron Metabolism
Iron is ubiquitous in the environment and in biology. The study of iron biology focuses on physiology and homeostasis-understanding how cells and organisms regulate their iron content, how diverse… Expand
Systemic iron homeostasis and the iron-responsive element/iron-regulatory protein (IRE/IRP) regulatory network.
The regulation and maintenance of systemic iron homeostasis is critical to human health. Iron overload and deficiency diseases belong to the most common nutrition-related pathologies across the… Expand

Hypoxia stimulates erythropoiesis, the major iron-utilization pathway. We report the discovery of a conserved, functional iron-responsive element (IRE) in the 5′ untranslated region of the messenger… Expand
A Red Carpet for Iron Metabolism
200 billion red blood cells (RBCs) are produced every day, requiring more than 2 × 1015 iron atoms every second to maintain adequate erythropoiesis. These numbers translate into 20 mL of blood being… Expand
Expression of the miR-17-92 polycistron in chronic myeloid leukemia (CML) CD34+ cells.
Aberrant micro RNA (miRNA) expression has been described in human malignancies including B-cell lymphomas. We here report BCR-ABL- and c-MYC-dependent regulation of miRNA expression in chronic… Expand

Exonucleolytic degradation of the poly(A) tail is often the first step in the decay of eukaryotic mRNAs and is also used to silence certain maternal mRNAs translationally during oocyte maturation and… Expand
