Hephaestin

hephaestin, CPL, Heph
The protein encoded by this gene is similar to an iron transport protein found in mouse. The mouse protein is similar to ceruloplasmin, a serum multi-copper ferroxidase, and is thought to be a membrane-bound protein responsible for transport of dietary iron from epithelial cells of the intestinal lumen into the circulatory system. In mouse, defects in this gene can lead to severe microcytic anemia. Three transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene.

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.
