fasta formatted sequence

Function: Ferric-chelate reductase that reduces Fe(3+) to Fe(2+). Present at the brush border of duodenal enterocytes where it probably reduces dietary Fe(3+) thereby facilitating its transport into the mucosal cells. Uses ascorbate as electron donor. May be involved in extracellular ascorbate recycling in erythrocyte membranes. May also act as a ferrireductase in airway epithelial cells.
Cellular location: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein.
Tissue specificity: Present in erythrocyte membranes (at protein level). Also expressed in respiratory epithelium.

Genetic variants

Genetic variations in CYBRD1 may act as modifier of iron overload expression and account for the variance observed in serum ferritin levels in patients with hereditary hemochromatosis.
