Cholestasis downregulate hepcidin expression through inhibiting IL-6-induced phosphorylation of signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 signaling

Abstract

Hepcidin is downregulated during progressive cholestasis in biliary atresia, but the mechanism is unknown. To verify whether downregulation of hepcidin is specific to cholestasis irrespective of the patient's age, we first analyzed liver hepcidin mRNA and protein expression in adults with primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) (n=4), non-cholestatic cirrhosis (n… (More)
