Feeney, G.P., Zheng, D., Kille, P., and Hogstrand. C. (2005) The phylogeny of teleost ZIP and ZnT zinc transporters and their tissue specific expression and response to zinc in zebrafish. BBA Gene Structure and Expression. 1732(1-3):88-95.
In contrast to mammals, zinc transporter genes remain largely uncharacterised in teleosts. Teleost zinc transporter genes were data-mined and phylogenetically assigned to mammalian orthologues. For the first time in animals, the tissue-distribution and mRNA expression response to zinc for most zinc transporter genes was tested in zebrafish.
