26643924 ZIP2 Gln/Arg/Leu polymorphism involve in proinflammatory mediation and zinc homeostasis in elderly population with a more pronounced anti-inflammatory effect of zinc supplementation in subjects carrying ZIP2 Leu- (Arg43Arg) genotype
24936057 results of this study suggest that ZIP2, a zinc transporter expressed specifically in the epidermis, and zinc taken up by ZIP2 are necessary for the differentiation of keratinocytes
23921484 Data indicate that the average expression level of zinc transporter Zip2 was significantly higher and zinc transporters Zip6, Zip8 mRNA levels were significantly lower in short stature children than in health controls.
23686108 Increased expression of Zip2 gene is closely associated with immunity of pulmonary tuberculosis patients, suggesting that the Zip2 gene may play a key role in initial infection control.
21603979 Expression of two Zn2+ influx transporters, ZIP2 and ZIP4, is reduced as a function of retinal pigment epithelium age.
