TFR2(Transferrin receptor protein 2), is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TFR2 gene. This gene is a member of the transferrin receptor-like family and encodes a single-pass type II membrane protein with a protease associated(PA) domain, an M28 peptidase domain and a transferrin receptor-like dimerization domain. By radiation hybrid analysis, Kawabata et al.(1999) mapped the TFR2 gene to chromosome 7q22.The majority of hepatic iron uptake under normal circumstances is transferrin-mediated. However, expression of TFRC in hepatocytes, as in other nonreticuloendothelial cell types, is downregulated in response to increased intracellular iron. As a consequence, TFRC expression in liver is undetectable in hereditary hemochromatosis patients with hepatic iron loading. Nonetheless, hepatic iron loading in hemochromatosis patients is progressive. Fleming et al.(2000) provided support for a mechanism that involves the uptake of transferrin-bound iron by TFR2.
