ZIP14 (slc39A14) is a zinc transporter induced in response to pro-inflammatory stimuli. ZIP14 induction accompanies the reduction in serum zinc (hypozincemia) of acute inflammation. ZIP14 can transport Zn(2+) and non-transferrin-bound Fe(2+) in vitro. Using a Zip14(-/-) mouse model we demonstrated that ZIP14 was essential for control of phosphatase PTP1B(More)
Zinc transporters have been characterized to further understand the absorption and metabolism of dietary zinc. Our goal was to characterize zinc transporter Slc39a11 (ZIP11) expression and its subcellular localization within cells of the murine gastrointestinal tract of mice and to determine if dietary zinc regulates ZIP11. The greatest ZIP11 expression was(More)
BACKGROUND Although the importance of adequate zinc intake has been known for decades, the estimated global prevalence of zinc deficiency remains high. This substantiates the need for a specific and sensitive status assessment tool. OBJECTIVE The objective was to evaluate erythrocyte zinc transporters as candidate molecules with the potential of being a(More)
ZIP14 is a zinc transport protein with high expression in the small intestine and liver. Zip14 is upregulated during endotoxemia and leads to increased liver zinc content and transient hypozinemia. Since body zinc status and inflammation are associated with changes in intestinal permeability, we hypothesized that ZIP14 may influence intestinal permeability.(More)

Soybean oil-based intravenous fat emulsions (IVFEs) have been the predominant parenteral nutrition IVFE used in the United States for neonates over the past 45 years. Even though this emulsion has proven useful in supplying infants with energy for growth and essential fatty acids, there have been concerns over its composition in the development of several(More)
We aimed to characterize the lipidomic, metabolomic, and transcriptomic profiles in preterm piglets administered enteral (ENT) formula or three parenteral lipid emulsions [parenteral nutrition (PN)], Intralipid (IL), Omegaven (OV), or SMOFlipid (SL), for 14 days. Piglets in all parenteral lipid groups showed differential organ growth versus ENT piglets;(More)
Soy isoflavones exert beneficial health effects; however, their potential to ameliorate conditions associated with the metabolic syndrome (MetS) has not been studied in detail. In vitro and in vivo models were used to determine the effect of isoflavones on lipid metabolism, inflammation, and oxidative stress. In nude mice, consumption of Novasoy (NS)(More)
