20705137 the expression of human Zn transporter1 (hZIP1) appears to correlate with the Zn levels in the prostate glands and may be the major Zn regulator in this organ.

19644445 ZIP is a novel transcription repressor, represses EGFR oncogene and suppresses breast carcinogenesis
19026724 The core promoter region responsible for constitutive expression of hZip1 were identified and critical roles for SP1 and CREB1 in transcriptional regulation of the hZip1 gene in prostate cancer cells, was demonstrated.
18765529 results show that hZIP1 overexpression has a functional effect on the malignant potential of prostate cancer cells via inhibition of NF-kappaB-dependent pathways and support the concept that hZIP1 may function as a tumor suppressor gene
18279033 Gene expression regulation of ZIPs after zinc supplementation.
17635580 di-leucine sorting signal of ZIP1 was required and sufficient for endocytosis of the chimeric proteins

16153295 down regulation of hZIP1 is a critical early event in the development prostate cancer
14525987 ZIP1, ZIP2 and ZIP3 may play cell-specific roles in zinc homeostasis rather than primary roles in the acquisition of dietary zinc
12888280 zip1 mechanism of transport appears to involve the transport of zinc from low molecular weight ligands that exist in circulation as relatively loosely bound complexes with zinc
