Core Tip Due to obesity epidemic the incidence of non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is on the rise. Iron contributes to disease severity and the expression of key iron regulatory hormone, hepcidin is modulated in NAFLD patients. The underlying mechanisms are unknown. We have generated hepcidin knockout mice with iron overload phenotype. This study investigates the role of hepcidin in NAFLD by using high fat and high sucrose-fed knockout mice as an experimental model of NAFLD. Our findings showed attenuated steatosis and early fibrosis development suggesting a role for hepcidin in the regulation of metabolic processes in the liver, and in NAFLD.
