23368743 TRPML1 works in concert with ZnT4 to regulate zinc translocation between the cytoplasm and lysosomes.
22632162 FITC-labeled Tat 47-59 peptide downregulates gene expression of solute carrier family 30 (zinc transporter), member 4 (SLC30A4) in U-937 macrophages
22254085 The loss of ZnT4 in airway inflammation contributes to airway epithelium vulnerability in diseases such as asthma.

19625176 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
19371353 our results suggest that alterations in Zn transport proteins ZnT-1, ZnT-4 and ZnT-6 may contribute to the pathology observed in preclinical Alzheimer's disease subjects before onset of clinical symptoms

18676680 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
18639746 Data show that ZNT4 is extensively present in the Abeta-positive plaques in the cortex of human AD brains.
17971500 hZnT-4 is found in the plasma membrane. It is most highly expressed in Molt-4 cells, up-regulated after treatment with phytohemagglutinin & is responsible for the measured decrease of intracellular zinc content after high zinc exposure.
16580781 Our results show that Zn transporter-4 and Zn transporter-6 are significantly (P<0.05) increased in hippocampus/parahippocampal gyrus of early Alzheimer's disease and Alzheimer's disease subjects.
15187159 findings implicate a role for ZnT(4) in mast cell Zn homeostasis and suggest that granule pools of Zn may be distinct from those regulating activation of procaspase-3 and NF-kappaB.
14968438 Decreased hZnT-4 expression is associated with prostate tissue abnormalities independent of total cellular zinc content.
12955079 decreased intensity of ZnT4 immunoreactivity occurred in the progression from benign to invasive localized prostate cancer and to metastatic disease
12743795 The hZnT4 protein did not co-localise with intracellular free zinc pools, suggesting that hZnT4 is not involved in transport of zinc into vesicles destined for secretion into milk.
11988082 hZnT4 is constitutively expressed in the human breast and may be one of the several members of the ZnT family involved in the transport of zinc into milk
11935329 not responsible for acrodermatitis enteropathica in Japanese families
11686514 Genomic localization, organization; exclusion in variants of acrodermatitis enteropathica.
