A normal Western diet provides approximately 15 mg of iron daily. Of that iron, digestion within the gut lumen releases about half in a soluble form, from which about 3 mg may be taken up by mucosal cells and only about 1 mg (or 5–10% of dietary iron) transferred to the portal blood in a healthy man. Iron absorption can thus be influenced at several different stages. 2 Daily iron losses and requirements. Daily loss (mg) Group (age, years) Urine, skin, faeces, etc. 15 ∗ Non-menstruating. † Median loss.

This is mediated by matriptase and ERFE. Hepcidin binds ferroportin (FPN), causing its destruction and so inhibits iron absorption and iron release from macrophages into plasma and from intracellular compartments. BMP, bone morphogenetic protein; ERFE, erythroferrone; The ? indicates uncertainty of the ERFE function in humans; GDF-15 may be the human equivalent of ERFE. TFR1 TF/HFE TFR2 HFE HJV BMP6 SMAD1, 5, 8 +4 Matriptase 2 Lactoferrin is a glycoprotein that is structurally related to transferrin.

After Epo, the second most important signalling system for erythropoiesis involves SCF (stem cell factor also called c-Kit). SCF was originally identified by its ability to stimulate proliferation of multipotent haemopoietic progenitors, but it is also effective in supporting growth of committed progenitors, including erythroid progenitors, acting synergistically with Epo. In addition to SCF and Epo, stimulation of the nuclear hormone receptors for dexamethasone (glucocorticoid receptor) and oestrogen (oestrogen receptor) produces sustained proliferation of erythroid progenitors.
