The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein that is similar to MHC class I-type proteins and associates with beta2-microglobulin (beta2M). It is thought that this protein functions to regulate iron absorption by regulating the interaction of the transferrin receptor with transferrin. The iron storage disorder, hereditary haemochromatosis, is a recessive genetic disorder that results from defects in this gene. At least nine alternatively spliced variants have been described for this gene. Additional variants have been found but their full-length nature has not been determined.

Iron metabolism and related genetic diseases: A cleared land, keeping mysteries.
Loréal et al., Rennes, France. In J Hepatol, Feb 2016
The liver is strongly involved when iron excess is related either to hepcidin deficiency, as in HFE, hemojuvelin, hepcidin, and transferrin receptor 2 related haemochromatosis, or to hepcidin resistance, as in type B ferroportin disease.
Risk Factors for Insulin Resistance, Metabolic Syndrome, and Diabetes in 248 HFE C282Y Homozygotes Identified by Population Screening in the HEIRS Study.
Acton et al., London, Canada. In Metab Syndr Relat Disord, Feb 2016
BACKGROUND: We sought to identify risk factors for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome (MetS), and diabetes mellitus in 248 non-Hispanic white HFE C282Y homozygotes identified by population screening.
Meta analysis on relationship between distributions of C282Y and H63D alleles and genotypes and hepatocellular carcinoma.
Jing et al., Chongqing, China. In Minerva Med, Feb 2016
UNASSIGNED: According to the results of retrieving PubMed/MEDLINE and EMBASE databases, this study summarized distributions of two commonly mutated alleles (C282Y and H63D) and genotypes in HFE gene, and considered odds ratios (ORs) as well as its 95% confidence intervals (95% CIs) as effective variables of the included study itself and after summarizing.
Brain iron accumulation affects myelin-related molecular systems implicated in a rare neurogenetic disease family with neuropsychiatric features.
Milward et al., Newcastle, Australia. In Mol Psychiatry, Feb 2016
To understand how iron loading affects the brain, we studied mice with disruption of two iron regulatory genes, hemochromatosis (Hfe) and transferrin receptor 2 (Tfr2).
Variation in an Iron Metabolism Gene Moderates the Association Between Blood Lead Levels and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children.
Nikolas et al., United States. In Psychol Sci, Jan 2016
In a case-control study, we examined the association between ADHD symptoms in children and blood lead level as moderated by variants in the hemochromatosis (HFE) gene.
HFE gene: Structure, function, mutations, and associated iron abnormalities.
Acton et al., Birmingham, United States. In Gene, Jan 2016
The hemochromatosis gene HFE was discovered in 1996, more than a century after clinical and pathologic manifestations of hemochromatosis were reported.
Differential expression of feeding-related hypothalamic neuropeptides in the first generation of quails divergently selected for low or high feed efficiency.
Dridi et al., Fayetteville, United States. In Neuropeptides, Jan 2016
ADPN gene expression was higher and its receptor Adip-R1 was lower in LFE compared to HFE females (P<0.05).
Genetic variants in adult liver diseases.
Keitel et al., In Z Gastroenterol, Dec 2015
Identification of genetic variants is an important part of the diagnostic process, e. g. the majority of patients with high iron [Fe] (HFE)-associated hemochromatosis carry the homozygous mutation p.C282Y.
Zwerina et al., Vienna, Austria. In Z Rheumatol, Sep 2015
The homozygous C282Y mutation in the HFE gene is responsible for most cases of hereditary hemochromatosis, although other much rarer mutations in other genes have been recently identified.
SLC39A14 Is Required for the Development of Hepatocellular Iron Overload in Murine Models of Hereditary Hemochromatosis.
Knutson et al., Gainesville, United States. In Cell Metab, Aug 2015
To test the role of SLC39A14 in tissue iron loading, we crossed Slc39a14(-/-) mice with Hfe(-/-) and Hfe2(-/-) mice, animal models of type 1 and type 2 (juvenile) hemochromatosis, respectively.
The Human Factors and Ergonomics of P300-Based Brain-Computer Interfaces.

This review examined the literature to highlight studies that implicate the human factors and ergonomics (HFE) of P300-based BCIs.
The adaptable major histocompatibility complex (MHC) fold: structure and function of nonclassical and MHC class I-like molecules.
Luoma et al., Chicago, United States. In Annu Rev Immunol, 2012
Well adapted for antigen presentation, as seen for peptides in the classical MHC molecules and for lipids in CD1 molecules, the MHC fold has also been modified to perform Fc-receptor activity (e.g., FcRn) and for roles in host homeostasis (e.g., with HFE and ZAG).

Lack of the bone morphogenetic protein BMP6 induces massive iron overload.
Roth et al., Toulouse, France. In Nat Genet, 2009
The iron burden in Bmp6 mutant mice is significantly greater than that in mice deficient in the gene associated with classical hemochromatosis (Hfe), suggesting that mutations in BMP6 might cause iron overload in humans with severe juvenile hemochromatosis for which the genetic basis has not yet been characterized.
