• induction of hepcidin
  • Transferrin receptor-2 activation by its ligand holotransferrin led to extracellular signal regulated kinase (ERK)/mitogen activated protein kinase pathway stimulation and the ERK specific inhibitor U0-126 blunted holotransferrin-mediated induction of hepcidin. (haematologica.org)
  • serum
  • MIN6 cells were exposed to high glucose concentrations (33.3 mmol/L). Glucose-stimulated insulin secretion (GSIS) and serum hepcidin levels were measured by ELISA. (bioscientifica.com)
  • isoforms
  • In addition, the usefulness of hepcidin dosage is highlighted, including the problems associated with analytical methods currently used as well as the measures of its molecular isoforms. (bloodresearch.or.kr)
