Hepcidin

Hepcidin wird vom HAMP-Gen kodiert. Es ist ein wichtiger Regulator im Eisenstoffwechsel und reguliert sowohl die Speicherung in den Makrophagen wie auch die Eisen-Aufnahme im Darm. Mutationen führen zur juvenilen Hämochromatose (Typ 2B). Oft liegt eine digenische Erkrankung vor, bei welcher eine heterozygote Mutation zusammen mit einer zweiten HFE1-Mutation auftritt.
