SLC11 gene also encodes proteins like divalent cation transporter 1 (DCT1) and solute carrier family 11 [136, 137].
Fe(II) is transported across the cellular membrane by a 12-transmembranesegment protein, divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1), also known as SLC11A2, NRAMP2 and DCT1 (Table I).
Lately, the first example of sequence variants for SLC11A2, the gene that encodes for divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1; also known as DCT1 or NRAMP2), was shown in a human with hepatic iron overload in the presence of hypochromic anemia (163,164).
