Abstract

The trace element zinc is essential to a diverse array of structural, catalytic, and regulatory functions in mammals. With no known storage form of this element, zinc deficiency is rapidly induced in animal models, and, in humans, zinc deficiency contributes to reduced growth and immune function. While severe zinc deficiency is not common in the developed world, marginal zinc deficiency could contribute to a number of disease states. Current research is focused on understanding the cellular regulation of zinc including intracellular transporters that shuttle zinc within organelles, and between cells and the extracellular space, and the role of zinc in human health.
