Reporting, "restoring zinc status via dietary supplementation reduced aged-associated inflammation," the study authors submit: "Our data suggested that age-related epigenetic dysregulation in zinc transporter expression may influence cellular zinc levels and contribute to increased susceptibility to inflammation with age.

It found that zinc transporters were significantly dysregulated in old animals.
Recently, the zinc transporter 8 (ZnT8) was identified as a novel autoantibody antigen in patients with new-onset type 1 diabetes (3).

Bagasra, "In this research project, it is my goal to test this hypothesis by analyzing prostate cancer tissues for the expression of mRNAs that code for various zinc transporter proteins.
The team also looked for significant differences in levels of zinc transporter proteins.
With the exclusion of islet-cell cytoplasmic autoantibodies (ICA), glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) autoantibodies (GADA), insulinoma 2 (IA-2)-associated autoantibodies (IA-2A), insulin autoantibodies (IAA), and zinc transporter 8 protein (ZnT8) islet autoantibody (ZnT8A), the other autoantibodies are difficult to measure and/or are not sufficiently sensitive or specific to warrant their use in present day studies of T1DM or its pathogenesis.
Specifically, cell activation stimulated the zinc transporter in T cells called "ZIP8," which transports stored zinc into the cell cytoplasm where it then alters the expression of a T cell protein in a way needed to fight infections.
