About This Section

Entrez Gene summary for HFE Gene:
The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane protein that is similar to MHC class I-type proteins and associates
with beta2-microglobulin (beta2M). It is thought that this protein functions to regulate iron absorption by
regulating the interaction of the transferrin receptor with transferrin. The iron storage disorder, hereditary
haemochromatosis, is a recessive genetic disorder that results from defects in this gene. At least nine
alternatively spliced variants have been described for this gene. Additional variants have been found but their
full-length nature has not been determined. (provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008)

GeneCards Summary for HFE Gene: 
HFE (hemochromatosis) is a protein-coding gene. Diseases associated with HFE include hemochromatosis, and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis. GO annotations related to this gene include protein binding. An important paralog of this gene is HLA-F.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot: HFE_HUMAN, Q30201
Function: Binds to transferrin receptor (TFR) and reduces its affinity for iron-loaded transferrin

    Polymorphism: Genetic variations in HFE define the transferrin serum level quantitative trait locus 2 (TFQTL2)
    [MIM:614193]. Iron is essential for biochemical functions such as oxygen transport and oxidative phosphorylation.
    Excessive iron can cause iron-overload-related liver diseases, whereas iron deficiency can lead to anemia. Iron
    status can be assessed by measuring the levels of serum iron, serum transferrin, transferrin saturation with
    iron, and serum ferritin

  • Hemochromatosis (HFE) [MIM:235200]: A disorder of iron metabolism characterized by iron overload. Excess
    iron is deposited in a variety of organs leading to their failure, and resulting in serious illnesses including
    cirrhosis, hepatomas, diabetes, cardiomyopathy, arthritis, and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism. Severe effects of
    the disease usually do not appear until after decades of progressive iron loading. Note=The disease is caused by
    mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry
  • Variegate porphyria (VP) [MIM:176200]: A form of porphyria. Porphyrias are inherited defects in the
    biosynthesis of heme, resulting in the accumulation and increased excretion of porphyrins or porphyrin
    precursors. They are classified as erythropoietic or hepatic, depending on whether the enzyme deficiency occurs
    in red blood cells or in the liver. Variegate porphyria is the most common form of porphyria in South Africa. It
    is characterized by skin hyperpigmentation and hypertrichosis, abdominal pain, tachycardia, hypertension and
    neuromuscular disturbances. High fecal levels of protoporphyrin and coproporphyrin, increased urine uroporphyrins
    and iron overload are typical markers of the disease. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations
    affecting the gene represented in this entry. Iron overload due to HFE variants is a precipitating or
    exacerbating factor in variegate porphyria
  • Microvascular complications of diabetes 7 (MVCD7) [MIM:612635]: Pathological conditions that develop in
    numerous tissues and organs as a consequence of diabetes mellitus. They include diabetic retinopathy, diabetic
    nephropathy leading to end-stage renal disease, and diabetic neuropathy. Diabetic retinopathy remains the major
    cause of new-onset blindness among diabetic adults. It is characterized by vascular permeability and increased
    tissue ischemia and angiogenesis. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene
    represented in this entry
