Summary of "Changes in Iron Status Are Related to Changes in Brain Activity and Behavior in Rwandan Female University Students: Results from a Randomized Controlled Efficacy Trial Involving Iron-Biofortified Beans."

Evidence suggests that iron deficiency (ID) affects cognitive performance, as measured in behavior. Although such effects must be mediated by changes in the brain, very few studies have included measures of brain activity to assess this relation.

Brain iron loading impairs DNA methylation and alters GABAergic function in mice.

Iron deficiency is closely associated with altered GABA metabolism and affective behavior. While mutation in the hemochromatosis ( HFE) gene disrupts iron homeostasis and promotes oxidative stress tha...

Impaired iPLAβ activity affects iron uptake and storage without iron accumulation: an in vitro study excluding decreased iPLAβ activity as the cause of iron deposition in PLAN.

PLA2G6-associated neurodegeneration (PLAN, NBIA2) is the second most common type of Neurodegeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation (NBIA), caused by recessive mutations of PLA2G6 gene, which encodes C...

Mild iron deficiency may affect female endurance and behavior.

The function of central nervous system (CNS) processes is highly dependent on iron containing enzymes and proteins. Therefore, even mild iron deficiency (ID) may result in decreased endurance, increas...

Fast near-whole-brain imaging in adult Drosophila during responses to stimuli and behavior.

Whole-brain recordings give us a global perspective of the brain in action. In this study, we describe a method using light field microscopy to record near-whole brain calcium and voltage activity at ...

Iron Status and Associated Malaria Risk Among African Children.

It remains unclear whether improving iron status increases malaria risk, and few studies have looked at the effect of host iron status on subsequent malaria infection. We therefore aimed to determine ...

The Effect of Early Iron Deficiency on Developmental Brain and Behavior in Infants

The purpose of this project to examine brain functions and behavior related to ID including sensory ,motor, cognitive and social /emotional functioning, and address unanswered questions ab...

Mechanism of Decreased Iron Absorption in Obesity: Controlling Adiposity-related Inflammation

The main iron regulatory protein in the human metabolism is hepcidin. In normal weight, healthy subjects, hepcidin is regulated through the iron status of the body: low iron status results...

An Iron-containing Food Product for the Prevention of Diminished Iron Status in Soldiers

Military personnel face intense physical and cognitive demands. Diminished iron status affects physiologic responses to these challenges. Both cross-sectional and longitudinal studies in...

Brain and Behavior Depending on Timing of Iron Deficiency in Human Infants

It is common in many populations that babies develop iron deficiency or iron deficiency anemia (that is, too few healthy red blood cells due to lack of iron). This is due to rapid growth i...

Effect of Iron Status on Occurrence of Non-transferrin-bound Iron (NTBI) in Serum in Response to an Oral Iron Load

This study aims to investigate a possible effect of iron status on temporary build-up of non-transferrin bound iron (NTBI) in healthy volunteers upon iron supplementation.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its RNA binding ability and its aconitate hydrolase activity are dependent upon availability of IRON.

A term used in Eastern European research literature on brain and behavior physiology for cortical functions. It refers to the highest level of integrative function of the brain, centered in the CEREBRAL CORTEX, regulating language, thought, and behavior via sensory, motor, and cognitive processes.

Iron or iron compounds used in foods or as food. Dietary iron is important in oxygen transport and the synthesis of the iron-porphyrin proteins hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, and cytochrome oxidase. Insufficient amounts of dietary iron can lead to iron-deficiency anemia.

Behaviors expressed by individuals to protect, maintain or promote their health status. For example, proper diet, and appropriate exercise are activities perceived to influence health status. Life style is closely associated with health behavior and factors influencing life style are socioeconomic, educational, and cultural.

A multifunctional iron-sulfur protein that is both an iron regulatory protein and cytoplasmic form of aconitate hydratase. It binds to iron regulatory elements found on mRNAs involved in iron metabolism and regulates their translation. Its rate of degradation is increased in the presence of IRON.
