is a tightly regulated process that is sensitive to the balance of the proteins that form hemoglobin, heme and globin. The protein FLVCR1a is responsible for removing excess heme from cells and is essential for erythropoiesis. In this issue of the Journal of Clinical Investigation, researchers led by Emanuela Tolosano at the University of Torino in Italy identified another form of FLVCR1, FLVCR1b, that is responsible for exporting heme from the mitochondria of the cell, the location of heme production. By manipulating the expression of the FLVCR1 proteins in mice, Tolosano and colleagues found that FLVCR1b was required for erythropoiesis. FLVCR1a was not required for erythropoiesis, but was necessary to prevent excess bleeding, swelling, and skeletal abnormalities in the developing mouse embryo. These results indicate that mutations in the Flvcr1 gene may underlie diseases characterized by abnormal heme levels, such as Sideroblastic anemia. In a companion commentary, Mark Fleming of Children's Hospital Boston discusses the role of heme transport in human physiology and disease.
