The iron transporter ferroportin can also function as a manganese exporter.


The present study examined the hypothesis that the iron exporter ferroportin (FPN1/SLC40A1) can also mediate cellular export of the essential trace element manganese, using Xenopus laevis oocytes expressing human FPN1. When compared to oocytes expressing only the divalent metal transporter-1 (DMT1/NRAMP2), (54)Mn accumulation was lower in oocytes also… (More)
