Researchers use zinc to target insulin-producing cells with regenerative drug
To treat diabetes directly, rather than manage its symptoms, doctors need a way to get drugs to cells that produce insulin. The key, Stanford researchers report, may be those cells’ affinity for zinc.
Molecular processes in iron and zinc homeostasis and their modulation for biofortification in ric...
More than a billion people suffer from iron or zinc deficiencies globally. Rice (Oryza sativa L.) iron and zinc biofortification; i.e., intrinsic iron and zinc enrichment of rice grains, is considered the most effective way to tackle these deficiencies. However, rice iron biofortification, by mea...
Zinc sulfate contributes to promote telomere length extension via increasing telomerase gene expr...
The use of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) for cell therapy and regenerative medicine has received widespread attention over the past few years, but their application can be complicated by factors such as reduction in proliferation potential, the senescent tendency of the MSCs upon expansion and...

Polymicrobial sepsis influences NK-cell-mediated immunity by diminishing NK-cell-intrinsic recept...
Author summary Sepsis is an exaggerated host response to infection that can initially lead to significant morbidity/mortality and a long-lasting state of immunoparalysis in sepsis survivors. Sepsis-induced immunoparalysis functionally impairs numerous lymphocyte populations, including NK-cells.

Functional Promiscuity: The Choreography and Architecture of the Zinc Gang
By Contributing Editor Nuala F. Caomhánach The tale about gag knuckles, taz-two, hairpin, ribbons, and treble clef is quite elusive. Although they sound more like nicknames of a 1920’s bootlegging gang (at least to me) they are the formal nomenclature of a biochemical classification system,...
IJMS | Free Full-Text | In Vitro Studies on Zinc Binding and Buffering by Intestinal Mucins
The investigation of luminal factors influencing zinc availability and accessibility in the intestine is of great interest when analyzing parameters regulating intestinal zinc resorption. Of note, intestinal mucins were suggested to play a beneficial role in the luminal availability of zinc.

In rats, mice, and humans, it is known that zinc deficiency may be related to anemia, and zinc supplementation influences hemoglobin production. Our previous studies indicate that in fish, zinc supplementation stimulates red blood cell (RBC) formation (erythropoiesis).
