Cytochrome b reductase 1

Dcytb, CYBRD1
This gene is a member of the cytochrome b(561) family that encodes an iron-regulated protein. It highly expressed in the duodenal brush border membrane. It has ferric reductase activity and is believed to play a physiological role in dietary iron absorption. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)
Top mentioned proteins: DMT1, Transferrin, Hepcidin, hephaestin, HFE

McKie et al., London, United Kingdom. In Metallomics, Feb 2015
In terms of responses to iron HIF2α is of major importance in key tissues such as the intestine where several iron transporters (Ferroportin, Dcytb) contain HREs within their promoters which bind HIF2α.
Studies on different iron source absorption by in situ ligated intestinal loops of broilers.
Liu et al., Harbin, China. In Biol Trace Elem Res, Feb 2015
Compared with inorganic iron groups, in which higher FeSO4 absorption than Fe2(SO4)3 was observed, supplementation with organic Fe glycine chelate significantly increased the Fe concentration in the duodenum and jejunum (P < 0.05), however, decreased DMT1 and DcytB messenger RNA (mRNA) levels (P < 0.05).
A nanoparticulate ferritin-core mimetic is well taken up by HuTu 80 duodenal cells and its absorption in mice is regulated by body iron.

Finally, we further probed the mechanism of cellular acquisition of nano Fe(III) by assessing ferritin formation, as a measure of Fe uptake and utilization, in HuTu 80 duodenal cancer cells with targeted inhibition of divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1) and duodenal cytochrome b (DCYTB) before exposure to the supplemented iron sources.

The evaluations included: hemoglobin gain, hemoglobin regeneration efficiency (HRE), gene expression of divalente metal transporter 1 (DMT-1), duodenal citocromo B (DcytB), ferroportin, hephaestin, transferrin and ferritin and total plasma antioxidant capacity (TAC).

Tzatchev et al., Sofia, Bulgaria. In Folia Med (plovdiv), 2008
The increase of plasma ascorbate in human iron deficiency, especially in females in active age, could explain gender-related biological variation of plasma levels of vitamin C. The possible participation of ferric reductase activity Dcytb in transferrin cycle in liver and in neutrophil host defense implies new aspects of the role of vitamin C in the regulation of iron homeostasis.
