Zinc (Zn) is essential for a very large number and variety of cellular functions but is also potentially toxic. Zn homeostasis is therefore dynamically maintained by a variety of transporters and other proteins distributed in distinct cellular and subcellular compartments. Zn transport is mediated by two major protein families: the Zip family, which mediates Zn influx, and the ZnTs which are primarily linked to Zn sequestration into intracellular compartments and are, thereby, involved in… CONTINUE READING
