Abstract: Treatment for iron deficiency anemia can involve iron supplementation via dietary or parenteral routes that result in different cellular iron distributions. The effect of the administered iron on the iron regulatory system and hepcidin in the liver has not been well studied. Hepcidin, the liver-expressed central iron-regulatory peptide, is itself regulated through the bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)/SMAD signaling pathway. Specifically, Bmp6 expression is upregulated in response to iron and induces hepcidin t…
