In dealing with zinc’s essentiality/toxicity (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) duality, biological systems have developed the homeostatic ability to tightly regulate the zinc levels through a complicated framework for import and export, transport and distribution and sensing of zinc status to ensure that zinc does not participate in toxic reactions. In spite of the thousands of papers that have been published on biological effects of zinc, the challenge of quantifying the range of exposure doses that… CONTINUE READING
