Hemojuvelin (RGM-C)

Target (abbrv.) RGM-C
Target (full name) Hemojuvelin
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL010469 (3332-57_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol HFE2
UniProt ID Q6ZVN8
UniProt Comment
  • Acts as a bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) coreceptor. Through enhancement of BMP signaling regulates hepcidin (HAMP) expression and regulates iron homeostasis.
Pathway Interaction Database
  • BMP receptor signaling
  • Netrin-1 signaling

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs2236293) and 16 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
