Microbial induced hepsidin from cDCs can alleviate gastrointestinal disorders

Science Magazine reported April 10 2020 that conventional dendritic cells (cDCs) in our bodies induced by microbial stimulation in mice alleviate gastrointestinal disorders such as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). These cDCs are a prominent source of hepsidin, which maintains and regulates our bodies iron homeostasis or balance. Hepsidin is also critical to our body's ability to heal damaged tissue.

"Bleeding and altered iron distribution occur in multiple gastrointestinal diseases," according to the report. This happens during an imbalance of our iron levels. Microbial induced hepsidin from cDCs apoears to be the key to promoting local iron sequestration, thus triggering mucosal tissue repair in our intestines.
