Targeting the zinc transporter ZIP7 in the treatment of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes; Nutrients
The zinc transporter SLC39A7 (ZIP7) harbours a highly-conserved histidinerich N-terminal region that potentially contributes to zinc homeostasis in the endoplasmic reticulum; Computers in Biology and Medicine
The zinc transporter Zip7 is downregulated in skeletal muscle of insulin-resistant cells and in mice fed a high-fat diet; Cells
Zinc and gastrointestinal disorders: a role for the zinc transporters Zips and ZnTs
Zinc modulates several transcription-factor regulated pathways in mouse skeletal muscle cells; Molecules
Zinc stimulates glucose oxidation and glycemic control by modulating the insulin signaling pathway in human and mouse skeletal muscle cell lines; PLoS One
Zinc transporters and insulin resistance: therapeutic implications for type 2 diabetes and metabolic disease; Journal of Biomedical Science
