Protein degradation and iron homeostasis.
Mammalian iron homeostasis in health and disease: uptake, storage, transport, and molecular mechanisms of action.
TLDR
The various pathways of cellular iron uptake, cellular iron storage, and transport are discussed and recent advances in understanding the reduction and uptake of non-transferrin-bound iron are discussed.
Iron Homeostasis in Health and Disease
TLDR
This review provides an update on the molecular mechanisms regulating cellular and systemic Fe homeostasis and their roles in pathophysiologic conditions that involve alterations of iron metabolism, and provides novel therapeutic strategies to prevent the deleterious effect of its deficiency/overload.
Mechanisms of mammalian iron homeostasis.
TLDR
This review outlines recent advances in iron regulatory pathways as well as in mechanisms underlying intracellular iron trafficking, an important but less studied area of mammalian iron homeostasis.
Iron metabolism in man.
TLDR
An overview of the current understanding of iron metabolism, the recently discovered regulators of iron trafficking, and a focus on the effects of inflammation on the process is provided.
Mitochondrial iron metabolism and its role in diseases.
Mechanisms of iron metabolism in Caenorhabditis elegans
TLDR
Given that iron, hypoxia and insulin signaling pathways are evolutionarily conserved, C. elegans provides a genetic model organism that promises to provide new insights into mechanisms regulating mammalian iron metabolism.
New perspectives on the molecular basis of the interaction between oxygen homeostasis and iron metabolism
TLDR
How cells and organisms utilize these intricate networks to regulate responses to changes in oxygen and iron levels is described and the role of these pathways in some pathophysiological settings is explored.
Role of iron homeostasis in the heart
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of iron homeostasis and heart diseases are summarized and potential relationships between ferroptosis and cardiac ischemia–reperfusion injury and cardiomyopathy are discussed.

Regulation of iron homeostasis by the hypoxia-inducible transcription factors (HIFs).
TLDR
It is established that the von Hippel-Lindau/hypoxia-inducible transcription factor (VHL/HIF) pathway is an essential link between iron homeostasis and hepcidin regulation in vivo.
Iron regulatory proteins: from molecular mechanisms to drug development.
TLDR
This review focuses on recent findings concerning the IRP-mediated regulation of iron homeostasis, its alterations in disease, and new research directions to be explored in the near future.
Mammalian Tissue Oxygen Levels Modulate Iron-Regulatory Protein Activities in Vivo
TLDR
It is found that IRP2–/– cells misregulated iron metabolism when cultured in 3 to 6% oxygen, which is comparable to physiological tissue concentrations, but not in 21% Oxygen, a concentration that activated IRP1 and allowed it to substitute forIRP2.
Hemojuvelin is essential for dietary iron sensing, and its mutation leads to severe iron overload.
TLDR
It is shown that, within the liver, mouse Hjv is selectively expressed by periportal hepatocytes and also that HjV-mutant mice exhibit iron overload as well as a dramatic decrease in hepcidin expression.
An E3 Ligase Possessing an Iron-Responsive Hemerythrin Domain Is a Regulator of Iron Homeostasis
TLDR
It is found that an E3 ubiquitin ligase complex containing the FBXL5 protein targets IRP2 for proteasomal degradation, suggesting a mechanistic link between iron sensing via theFBXL5 hemerythrin domain, IRP 2 regulation, and cellular responses to maintain mammalian iron homeostasis.
Control of Iron Homeostasis by an Iron-Regulated Ubiquitin Ligase
TLDR
Iron homeostasis is regulated by a proteolytic pathway that couples IRP2 degradation to intracellular iron levels through the stability and activity of FBXL5, and a SKP1-CUL1-FBXL5 ubiquitin ligase protein complex associates with and promotes the iron-dependent ubiquitination and degradation ofIRP2.
Iron-regulatory proteins limit hypoxia-inducible factor-2α expression in iron deficiency
TLDR
The results uncover a regulatory link that permits feedback control between iron availability and the expression of a key transcription factor promoting iron utilization and show that an IRE that is structurally distinct from, for example, the ferritin mRNA IRE and that has been missed by in silico approaches, can mediate mechanistically similar responses.
Direct interorganellar transfer of iron from endosome to mitochondrion.
TLDR
Developing erythroid cells, which are taking up vast amounts of Fe, deliver the metal directly from transferrin-containing endosomes to mitochondria (the site of heme biosynthesis), bypassing the oxygen-rich cytosol.
