Recent advances in cloning of proteins involved in intestinal iron absorption can inform design and understanding of therapeutic iron preparations. Redox chemistry of iron is particularly important in iron metabolism, both as a potential source of toxic intermediates and as an essential requirement for efficient iron transport. The initial step in iron absorption (uptake from lumen to mucosa) is particularly important and several pathways involving Fe(III) reduction or transport and Fe(II… CONTINUE READING
