Iron toxicity-induced regulation of key secondary metabolic processes associated with t...
Ecotoxicology and Environmental Safety; Wang Q, Jin Q et. al.

Aug 28th, 2021 - Panax ginseng and Panax quinquefolius can survive for long periods of time in iron toxicity-stressed environments, which cause rusty roots and reduced productivity. To reveal the proteomic changes in these two Panax species in response to iron tox...

Mechanisms of cellular iron sensing, regulation of erythropoiesis and mitochondrial iro...
Seminars in Hematology; Maio N, Zhang DL et. al.

Aug 15th, 2021 - To maintain an adequate iron supply for hemoglobin synthesis and essential metabolic functions while counteracting iron toxicity, humans and other vertebrates have evolved effective mechanisms to conserve and finely regulate iron concentration, st...

Ferroptosis in infection, inflammation, and immunity.
The Journal of Experimental Medicine; Chen X, Kang R et. al.

May 13th, 2021 - Ferroptosis is a type of regulated necrosis that is triggered by a combination of iron toxicity, lipid peroxidation, and plasma membrane damage. The upstream inducers of ferroptosis can be divided into two categories (biological versus chemical) a...

Hard as Iron: A Case of Delayed Presentation of Severe Iron Toxicity With Diagnostic an...
Pediatric Emergency Care; Rickner SS, Feng SY

Apr 28th, 2021 - Cases of severe iron toxicity have become increasingly rare; most cases are intentional ingestions by late adolescents and adults who present within 12 hours of ingestion. We present a case of an adolescent girl with metabolic acidosis, hypoglycem...

Population genetic structure and association mapping for iron toxicity tolerance in rice.
PloS One; Pawar S, Pandit E et. al.

Mar 2nd, 2021 - Iron (Fe) toxicity is a major abiotic stress which severely reduces rice yield in many countries of the world. Genetic variation for this stress tolerance exists in rice germplasms. Mapping of gene(s)/QTL controlling the stress tolerance and trans...

Will We Make Artificial Blood Soon? (STAT)

Feb 27th, 2017 - Researchers have sought a blood substitute for over 150 years, and they've all failed. Now, one candidate has demonstrated promising early results, while another nears clinical trials again, reported STAT. ErythroMer encloses hemoglobin in a synth...

Study challenges previous notions about RBC disposal
HT Staff

Jul 19th, 2016 - Red blood cells A new study contradicts previous beliefs about how the body disposes of red blood cells (RBCs) and recycles their iron. The work suggests the accumulation and removal of aged or damaged RBCs largely takes place in the liver rather.

Excess Iron May Boost Adult Height

Aug 21st, 2013 - Action Points Patients with hemochromatosis were taller on average than those in a reference population. The deviation in height did not correlate with the type of HFE mutation, serum ferritin level, liver enzyme elevation, liver fibrosis, or clin...
