True (A) or false (B)--click on the correct answer: Soluble transferrin receptor levels are low in patients with iron deficiency anaemia.
2,6) Ferritin and soluble transferrin receptors are probably the best biomarkers for the assessment of iron status in the absence of inflammation, but interpretation in the presence of inflammation and malignancy is difficult.
Several proteins mediating iron uptake into cells have been identified, including the ubiquitously expressed transferrin receptor 1, which binds iron complexed to transferrin (31); transferrin receptor 2, the expression of which is restricted to hepatocytes, duodenal crypt cells, and erythroid precursors; divalent metal transporter 1, a H+/divalent metal symporter found in duodenal enterocytes, which mediates uptake of dietary iron (32,33); cubilin, a protein expressed in polarized epithelial cells in the kidney, which mediates endocytosis of iron and transferrin with its coreceptor megalin (34); and the hemoglobin scavenger receptor CD163, which is expressed on the surface of monocytes and macrophages and receives plasma hemoglobin bound to haptoglobin.
