BACKGROUND/AIMS The recovery from iron overload is hampered by the limited number of pathways and therapeutic agents available for the augmentation of iron secretion/excretion. The present study was aimed to investigate the process of iron storage and release by cultured human hepatoma cells, the role of transferrin receptors and ferritin in this process as well as the effect of iron chelators. METHODS We followed the acquisition, storage and release of iron by cultured cells HepG2 and Hep3B… CONTINUE READING
