Immortalized cell line HEK293 that stably expresses mouse divalent metal transporter-1 (DMT1).
The divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1), also known as natural resistance-associated macrophage protein 2 (NRAMP 2), and divalent cation transporter 1 (DCT1), binds a variety of divalent metals, but is best known for its role in transporting ferrous iron (Fe2+); DMT1 expression is regulated by body iron stores to maintain iron homeostasis. In the digestive tract, it is located on the apical membrane of enterocytes, where it carries out H+ coupled transport of divalent metal cations from the intestinal lumen into the cell. DMT1 is also involved in the delivery of iron to peripheral tissues by transferrin. Defects in the DMT1 gene cause microcytic anemia in the mk mouse, an animal model that displays defective dietary iron absorption.
