Cells maintain zinc concentrations with relatively narrow limits. Nevertheless, physiologically relevant changes in free Zn(II) pools or changes in Zn bound to specific ligands or within vesicles may occur without a major change in total cellular zinc concentrations. The task of maintaining such levels rests in part with zinc transporter proteins. The genes for some putative zinc transporters have recently been cloned. As of this time, most have not been directly shown to transport zinc in… CONTINUE READING
