Congenital pulmonary lymphangiectasis (CPL) is a rare vascular malformation causing dilated lymph vessels and disturbed drainage of lymph fluid.
Intestinal iron absorption.
Brisbane, Australia. In J Trace Elem Med Biol, 2012
This transporter acts in partnership with the ferroxidase hephaestin that oxidizes exported ferrous iron to facilitate its binding to plasma transferrin.
Unexpected role of ceruloplasmin in intestinal iron absorption.
Cleveland, United States. In Cell Metab, 2005
The paralogous vertebrate ferroxidases ceruloplasmin (Cp) and hephaestin (Heph) are considered to have nonidentical functions in iron transport: plasma Cp drives iron transport from tissue stores while intestinal Heph facilitates iron absorption from the intestinal lumen.
