27129231 TGF-beta1 may contribute to hepcidin synthesis during iron overload.
26981017 Studies indicate plasma and urine hepcidin as a marker of anemia of chronic disease and post-transplant anemia (PTA).
26866603 gonadotropin-stimulated endogenous estrogen markedly decreases circulating hepcidin-25 levels
26807955 Ceramide induced the binding of STAT3, but not NF-kappaB or c-Jun, to HAMP promoter.The mutation of STAT3 response element within 0.6 kb HAMP promoter region significantly inhibited the stimulatory effect of ceramide on HAMP promoter activity.
26582087 Identify 3 heterozygous missense mutations in BMP6 in patients with unexplained iron overload. These mutations lead to loss of signaling to SMAD proteins and reduced hepcidin production.
26515063 results clarify how commensal bacteria affect hepcidin expression and reveal a novel connection between IL-1beta and activation of BMP signaling.
26460251 erythropoietic drive, iron status, and inflammation all contribute to variation in hepcidin level.
26437604 The concentration of functional membrane-associated ferroportin is controlled by its ligand, the iron-regulatory hormone hepcidin, and fine-tuned by regulatory mechanisms serving iron homeostasis, oxygen utilization, host defense, and erythropoiesis.
26405701 Hepcidin levels are higher in NAFLD with iron overload.
26378394 Low hepcidin levels are associated with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
