Target Background

Major iron transporter that plays a key role in balancing cellular and systemic iron levels. Transports iron from intestinal, splenic, and hepatic cells into the blood to provide iron to other tissues. Controls therefore dietary iron uptake, iron recycling by macrophages, and release of iron stores in hepatocytes. When iron is in excess, hepcidin/HAMP levels increase resulting in a degradation of ferroportin/SLC40A1 limiting the iron efflux to plasma.
Gene References into Functions
  1. SLC40A1 expression is increased in the intestine of patients with type 2 diabetes in association with iron stores and serum hepcidin levels. PMID: 29082606
  2. In this study, we identified three domestic sporadic families of hereditary hemochromatosis in China and demonstrated mutations in HFE and SLC40A1 respectively. PMID: 28110135
  3. The 1st 3D model of human ferroportin was used to study disease-associated mutations to determine the role of conserved residues in protein stability and iron transport. Molecular mechanisms critical for ferroportin endocytosis include at least 3 fundamental steps: hepcidin binding, structural reorganization of the N- and C-ter ferroportin lobes, and ferroportin ubiquitination. PMID: 28826751
  4. SLC40A1 mutation analysis in 7 Italian families with type 4 hereditary hemochromatosis PMID: 29154924
  5. Ferroportin protects erythrocytes against oxidative stress and malaria infection. PMID: 29599243
  6. Nrf2 suppresses prostate cancer cells viability, migration, and mitosis by upregulating ferroportin expression. PMID: 27788496
  7. Of the non-HFE forms of iron overload, TFR2-, HFE2-, and HAMP-related forms are predicted to be rare, with pathogenic allele frequencies in the range of 0.00007 to 0.0005. Significantly, SLC40A1 variants that have been previously associated with autosomal-dominant ferroportin disease were identified in several populations (pathogenic allele frequency 0.0004), being most prevalent among Africans PMID: 26633544
  8. Of the 13 iron-overloaded patients showed that 10 were homozygous for the c.44-24G>C polymorphism located in intron 1, whereas the three remaining patients were heterozygous for this sequence variation. Several reports have suggested that this polymorphism could be linked to IO and/or to the severity of haemochromatosis. PMID: 26474245
  9. study followed the dynamics of hepcidin-mediated ferroportin internalization; also showed that the novel p.D84E mutation, associated with the classical form of ferroportin disease, is both iron transport defective and hepcidin insensitive PMID: 28681497

  12. These results suggest that FPN1 exports iron received from the iron chaperone PCBP2. Therefore, it was found that PCBP2 modulates cellular iron export, which is an important physiological process. PMID: 27302059
  13. All these findings suggest that in erythroid cells FPN1 could be part of the signaling pathway through which the erythron communicates iron needs to expand the erythroid compartment regardless of systemic iron level. PMID: 27067485
  14. Mir-20a controls expression of the iron exporter ferroportin (FPN1) by binding to highly conserved target sites in its 3'-untranslated region. Expression of miR-20a is inversely correlated to FPN1 in lung cancer. PMID: 26560875
  15. 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. PMID: 26437604
  16. Low hepcidin and high ferroportin expression by erythroblasts and macrophages were seen in iron deficiency anemia, while the opposite was true in anemia of chronic disorders. PMID: 25745821
  17. Erythroblasts from Beta-thalassemia patients showed a significantly reduced expression of total MTP1 protein. PMID: 26666535
  18. Several family members had hemochromatosis and hyperferritinemia associated with a SLC40A1 deletion in exon 5(485_487delTTG) resulting in the deletion of a valine residue (p.V162del). This is the 1st Spanish family reported with this European mutation. PMID: 25441019

  22. Decreased expression of hepcidin and ferroportin in hepatitis C patients indicates the importance of hepatocytic iron retention for viral response during pegylated-interferon plus ribavirin treatment. PMID: 25805936
  23. Data indicate that elevated miR-492 expression in prostate tumors that resulted in diminished myeloid zinc-finger 1 (MZF-1) and ferroportin (FPN). PMID: 25284586
  24. we demonstrated that downregulation of FPN1 plays critical roles in promoting myeloma cell growth and bone resorption in multiple myeloma. PMID: 25855377

  28. combined data overall deciphered the machinery that altered the hepcidin-ferroportin signaling in breast cancers. PMID: 25093806
  29. Results suggest that reduction in ferroportin levels in Alzheimer's disease brains are likely associated with cerebral ischaemia, inflammation, loss of neurons due to protein misfolding, senile plaque formation and possibly ageing process itself PMID: 24252754
  30. Findings and the iron overload phenotype of the patient suggest that the novel mutation c.386T>C (p.L129P) in the SLC40A1 gene has incomplete penetrance and causes the classical form of ferroportin disease. PMID: 24644245
