27137936 findings establish that some heterozygous loss of function ZnT2 mutations disrupt zinc binding and zinc permeation, thereby suggesting a haploinsufficiency state for the unaffected WT ZnT2 allele in Transient Neonatal Zinc Deficiency
26293594 Our study indicates that SLC30A2 variants are common in this population, dysregulate Zn management and can lead to breast cell dysfunction.
25618524 Human ZnT2 expression is regulated by MTF-1.
24333596 PRL-R attenuation post-transcriptionally increased ZnT2 abundance and redistributed intracellular Zn pools into lysosomes and mitochondria.
22733820 inactivating ZnT-2 mutations are an underlying basis of TNZD and provide the first evidence for the dominant inheritance of heterozygous ZnT-2 mutations via negative dominance due to homodimer formation.
22364884 Results indicated that -697G>T and 1031A>G polymorphisms in the SLC30A2 gene may be associated with low-milk-zinc in Chinese breastfeeding women.
21462106 Pancreatic release of zinc by acinar cells is through the secretory process and apical membrane and involves transporter ZnT2
