Iron absorption in normal and iron-deficient beagle dogs: mucosal iron kinetics.

Abstract

Absorption of dietary iron requires uptake of iron by the brush border of the intestinal epithelial cells, intracellular transport, and transfer to the systemic circulation. In iron-deficiency anemia, iron absorption is greatly increased, but the individual steps responsible for this increase have not been identified. We have developed a method to evaluate… (More)
