    Hepcidin is a major regulator of iron metabolism. Hepcidin-based therapeutics/diagnostics could play roles in hematology in the future, and thus, hepcidin transport is crucial to understand. In this study, we identify alpha2-macroglobulin (alpha2-M) as the specific hepcidin-binding molecule in blood. Interaction of 125I-hepcidin with alpha2-M was identified using fractionation of plasma proteins followed by native gradient polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and mass spectrometry. Hepcidin binding to nonactivated alpha2-M displays high affinity , whereas hepcidin binding to albumin was nonspecific and displayed nonsaturable kinetics
