The mechanisms responsible for the differences in iron homeostasis observed at different ages were explored in a rat pup model. Similar to human infants, exclusively breast-fed rat pups were given daily iron supplements at levels (on a body weight basis) similar to those given to human infants. We found that iron absorption and tissue iron uptake were similar in control and iron supplemented rat pups at day 10 (“young infants”) and higher than at day 20 (“older infants”). This higher absorption also led to higher intestine and liver iron (which we could not assess in human infants) and haemoglobin, illustrating the inability of young rat pups to regulate iron absorption and the similarity to observations in human infants.

This higher absorption also led to higher intestine and liver iron (which we could not assess in human infants) and haemoglobin, illustrating the inability of young rat pups to regulate iron absorption and the similarity to observations in human infants. The primary iron transporters regulating iron absorption in the small intestine are divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT-1) and ferroportin (FPN) (Figure 3-1). Figure 3-1.
