Abstract
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.
