Erythropoiesis is also influenced by pathways other than Epo– EpoR. Erythroid progenitors express receptors for SCF (stem cell factor), insulin-like growth factor (IGF-1) and insulin. After Epo, the second most important signalling system for erythropoiesis involves SCF (stem cell factor also called c-Kit). SCF was originally identified by its ability to stimulate proliferation of multipotent haemopoietic progenitors, but it is also effective in supporting growth of committed progenitors, including erythroid progenitors, acting synergistically with Epo.
The general need to conserve the metal is reflected in the absence of any physiological mechanism for excretion of iron, control of iron balance being at the level of iron absorption. This is important in the rarer, but potentially fatal disorders of iron overload (see Chapter 4). Distribution of body iron The amount of iron in the adult human body is normally about 50 mg/kg in males and 40 mg/kg in females. 1). Much of the remainder is contained in the storage proteins ferritin and haemosiderin.
Housekeeping ALAS is ALAS1; in erythroid cells erythroid-specific ALAS2 predominates. ALA can be utilized for the formation of both purines and haem. Four molecules of porphobilinogen condense under the influence of porphobilinogen deaminase and uroporphyrinogen cosynthase to form the tetrapyrrole ring compound uroporphyrinogen III. The latter is converted to protoporphyrin IX. Finally, iron in the ferrous form is incorporated under the influence of the enzyme ferrochelatase. Iron in haem has six coordinating valencies: four link the iron to nitrogen atoms in each pyrrole ring, whereas the remaining two link haem to histidine residues in the globin chain, the distal bond being unstable and easily replaced by oxygen to form oxyhaemoglobin.
