Abstract: Hepcidin has been implicated as the iron stores regulator: a hepatic signaling molecule that regulates intestinal iron absorption by undefined mechanisms. The possibility that hepcidin regulates the expression of ferroportin 1 (FPT1), the basolateral iron transporter, was examined in rats after administration of LPS, an iron chelator, or His-tagged recombinant hepcidin (His-rHepc). In the liver, LPS stimulated a biphasic increase of hepcidin mRNA with peaks of mRNA at 6 and 36 h. Concurrently, hepatic FPT1 mRN…
