        • Receptor: transferrin receptor 1

          Induced phenotype:

          • regulation of iron ion transmembrane transport
            • A developing fetus needs a lot of iron, which is transferred across the human placenta. Iron uptake at the apical membrane of the syncytiotrophoblast occurs via TfR-mediated endocytosis of maternal iron. [1]
            • Hemochromatosis factor regulates TfR-mediated iron uptake. TfR and hemochromatosis factor, as well as TfR and divalent metal transporter-1 interact in placental trophoblast cells. [2]
