    Monash University researchers have identified a new mutation in a gene responsible for a process that is vital to developing the blood cells that absorb iron and generate haemoglobin. The mutation results in anaemia similar to that of an iron-deficiency.

    The researchers, in the Red Cell team at the Australian Centre for Blood Diseases (ACBD), revealed the mutation in the TFRC gene, which encodes for the Transferrin Receptor, the body’s main iron receptor.
