Defects in TfR2 and HFE lead to decreased hepcidin concentrations via the extracellular signal-regulated kinases: the mitogen-activated protein kinase (ERK/MAPK) pathwayand/or the bone morphogenetic protein/mothers against decapentaplegic homolog (Drosophila) (BMP/SMAD) pathway (Fig.
Other genes associated with significantly increased risk of MI are proline/serine-rich coiled-coil 1 (PSRC1), melanoma inhibitory activity family, member 3 (MIA3) and mothers against decapentaplegic homolog 3 also known as SMAD family member 3 (SMAD3) encoding cell-growth regulators, and a locus near the gene encoding the chemokine (C-X-C motif) ligand 12 (CXCL12) (71).
At the same stage, the TGF-[beta] factor decapentaplegic (dpp) also begins to be differentially expressed in the T3 leg femur with its dorsal expression domain being split into two.
