  • Oxygen-dependent secretion of a bioactive hepcidin-GFP chimera 

    Chachami, G.; Lyberopoulou, A.; Kalousi, A.; Paraskeva, E.; Pantopoulos, K.; Simos, G. (2013)
    Hepcidin, a hepatic hormone, regulates serum iron levels by controlling both intestinal iron absorption and iron release from macrophages. Although transcription of hepcidin is controlled by diverse stimuli, it remains ...
  • Serum and liver iron concentration in dogs with experimentally induced hepatopathy 

    Soubasis, N.; Rallis, T. S.; Vlemmas, J.; Adamama-Moraitou, K. K.; Roubies, N.; Prassinos, N. N.; Brellou, G. (2006)
    Background and Aim: Iron (Fe) status is altered in human and experimental animal hepatopathies. In dogs limited data are available. The aim of this study was to investigate serum iron (SI), total iron binding capacity ...
