    Duygu Dee Harrison-Findik
    Division of Gastroenterology Hepatology, Department of Internal Medicine, Houston, TX, USA
    Hepatology 46:1979-85. 2007
    ..Our findings therefore suggest that alcohol negates the protective effect of hepcidin, which may have implications for the liver injury observed in alcoholic liver disease and genetic hemochromatosis in combination with alcohol...
  2. ncbi Alcohol metabolism-mediated oxidative stress down-regulates hepcidin transcription and leads to increased duodenal iron transporter expression
    Duygu Dee Harrison-Findik
    Department of Internal Medicine, University of Nebraska Medical Center, Omaha, Nebraska 68198 5820, USA
    J Biol Chem 281:22974-82. 2006
    ..Collectively, these findings indicate that alcohol metabolism-mediated oxidative stress regulates hepcidin transcription via C/EBPalpha, which in turn leads to increased duodenal iron transport...

    Am J Physiol Gastrointest Liver Physiol 296:G112-8. 2009
    ..Therefore, these findings suggest that alcohol acts within hepatocytes to suppress hepcidin expression and thereby influences iron homeostasis...
