Investigates the relationship between changes in the blood picture and iron metabolism in the neotonal mouse from birth to 20 days. Decrease of the hemoglobin, hematocrit and erythrocye count until the fifth day; Observation of the reversal of the counts until the 15th day; Similarity of the phenomenon to the “neonatal anemia” present in other newborn mammals; Speculation of the event’s link to iron-deficiency anemia due to poor dietary sources; Aggravation of the condition due to the animal’s inability to utilize dietary iron efficiently for erythropoiesis.

    HO1 (haem oxygenase 1) and Fpn (ferroportin) are key proteins for iron recycling from senescent red blood cells and therefore play a major role in controlling the bioavailability of iron for erythropoiesis. Although important aspects of iron metabolism in HO1-deficient (Hmox1-/-)mice have...

    Individuals with β-thalassemia develop progressive systemic iron overload, resulting in high morbidity and mortality. These complications are caused by labile plasma iron, which is taken up by parenchymal cells in a dysregulated manner; in contrast, erythropoiesis depends on transferrin-bound...
