Expression of hepcidin and ferroportin in full term placenta of pregnant cows.

Abstract

Hepcidin (HEP) and ferroportin (FPN) play a central role in systemic iron homeostasis. The HEP/FPN axis controls both extracellular iron concentration and total body iron levels. HEP is synthesized mainly by hepatocytes and controls the absorption of dietary iron and the distribution of iron to the various cell types; its synthesis is regulated by both iron… (More)
