ZIP transporters (ZRT, IRT-like proteins) are involved in the transport of iron (Fe), zinc (Zn) and other divalent metal cations. The expression of IRT3, a ZIP transporter, is higher in the Zn/cadmium (Cd) hyperaccumulator Arabidopsis halleri than is that of its ortholog in Arabidopsis thaliana, which implies a positive association of its expression with Zn(More)
Abstract Zinc is an essential micronutrient, and yet it can be toxic when present in excess. Zinc acquisition and distribution are dependent on tightly controlled transport of Zn(2+) ions. Schizosaccharomyces pombe represents a second eukaryotic model to study cellular metal homeostasis. In several ways its micronutrient metabolism is fundamentally(More)
