STEAP3 metalloreductase

From NCBI Gene:

This gene encodes a multipass membrane protein that functions as an iron transporter. The encoded protein can reduce both iron (Fe3+) and copper (Cu2+) cations. This protein may mediate downstream responses to p53, including promoting apoptosis. Deficiency in this gene can cause anemia. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.

From UniProt:

Endosomal ferrireductase required for efficient transferrin-dependent iron uptake in erythroid cells. Participates in erythroid iron homeostasis by reducing Fe(3+) to Fe(2+). Can also reduce of Cu(2+) to Cu(1+), suggesting that it participates in copper homeostasis. Uses NADP(+) as acceptor. May play a role downstream of p53/TP53 to interface apoptosis and cell cycle progression. Indirectly involved in exosome secretion by facilitating the secretion of proteins such as TCTP.

From UniProt:

Anemia, hypochromic microcytic, with iron overload 2 (AHMIO2): A hematologic disease characterized by abnormal hemoglobin content in the erythrocytes which are reduced in size, severe anemia, erythropoietic hyperplasia of bone marrow, massive hepatic iron deposition, and hepatosplenomegaly.
