Expression of ZntA, a zinc-transporting P1-type ATPase, is specifically regulated by zinc and cadmium.


All cells have developed various mechanisms to regulate precisely the availability of important micronutrients such as zinc and copper; in many cells, this regulation is mediated by P1-type ATPases. Most of the P1-ATPases have been described very recently, and little is known about their molecular mechanism and regulation. Here, we demonstrate that the… (More)
