Abstract

Recent information gained from genetic and biochemical studies of iron transport in yeast, coupled with the identification of specific mutations causing iron uptake disorders in mice and man, has provided new clues about the mechanisms involved in iron uptake. This article summarizes these discoveries and discusses their impact on our current understanding of the biochemistry of iron uptake.
