Zinc transporter ZIP8 (SLC39A8) and zinc influence IFN- expression in activated human T cells.
... Study Title: Zinc and Immunity Study Abstract The zinc transporter ZIP8 is highly expressed in T cells derived from human subjects. T cell ZIP8 expression was markedly up-regulated upon in vitro activation. T cells collected from human subjects who had received oral zinc supplementation (15 mg/day) had higher expression of the activation marker IFN- upon in vitro activation, indicating a potentiating effect of zinc on T cell activation. Similarly, in vitro zinc treatment of T cells along with activation resulted in increased IFN- expression with a maximum ...

Study Title: Zinc Protects Against Alcohol Toxicity During Pregnancy Study Abstract ABSTRACT Background: We have previously demonstrated that ethanol teratogenicity is associated with metallothionein-induced fetal zinc (Zn) deficiency, and that maternal subcutaneous Zn treatment given with ethanol in early pregnancy prevents fetal abnormalities and spatial memory impairments in mice. Here we investigated whether dietary Zn supplementation throughout pregnancy can also prevent ethanol-related dysmorphology.Methods: Pregnant mice were injected with saline or 25% ethanol (0.015 ml/g intraperitoneally at 0 and 4 hours) on gestational day (GD) 8 ...

What if you are dealing with bouts of acne, eczema, low thyroid, depression or loss of appetite? Again, it's zinc to the rescue! This miracle mineral has even been found to help kids with learning or behavioral disorders, including ADHD and aggression issues. Unfortunately, zinc deficiency is believed to negatively impact over 2 billion people ...
Vesicular Zinc Promotes Presynaptic and Inhibits Postsynaptic Long-Term Potentiation of Mossy Fiber-CA3 Synapse
... Study Title: Zinc is Vital for Nerve Cell Communication Study Abstract The presence of zinc in glutamatergic synaptic vesicles of excitatory neurons of mammalian cerebral cortex suggests that zinc might regulate plasticity of synapses formed by these neurons. Long-term potentiation (LTP) is a form of synaptic plasticity that may underlie learning and memory. We tested the hypothesis that zinc within vesicles of mossy fibers (mf) contributes to mf-LTP, a classical form of presynaptic LTP. We synthesized an extracellular zinc chelator with selectivity and kinetic properties suitable for study of the ...
Zinc availability regulates exit from meiosis in maturing mammalian oocytes.
... Study Title: Zinc is Needed for Healthy Eggs Study Abstract Cellular metal ion fluxes are known in alkali and alkaline earth metals but are not well documented in transition metals. Here we describe major changes in the zinc physiology of the mammalian oocyte as it matures and initiates embryonic development. Single-cell elemental analysis of mouse oocytes by synchrotron-based X-ray fluorescence microscopy (XFM) revealed a 50% increase in total zinc content within the 12 – 14-h period of meiotic maturation. Perturbation of zinc homeostasis with a cell-permeable small-molecule chelator blocked meiotic progression past ...
Zinc shows an amazing ability to protect against alcohol damage, and is an important mineral for thyroid function.
... October 1, 2012| Byron J. Richards, Board Certified Clinical Nutritionist Several studies on zinc show its amazing ability to protect against alcohol damage. The data raises several interesting points – one of which is protecting yourself from alcohol intake and another is on general zinc deficiency, including alcohol induced, and its affect on thyroid function. A fascinating new animal study showed that zinc supplementation1 guarded against the adverse effects of alcohol during pregnancy, including stillbirths and mortality in early life. This is a major finding and goes along with ...

Zinc deficiency causes exaggerated inflammatory responses to endotoxin but has not been evaluated during bacterial sepsis. We hypothesized that subacute zinc deficiency would amplify immune responses and oxidant stress during bacterial sepsis {lsqb;i.e., cecal ligation and puncture (CLP){rsqb; resulting in increased mortality and that acute nutritional repletion of zinc would be ...

Study Title: Zinc Status Declines During the Aging Process Study Abstract Promoter analysis of the family of suppressors of cytokine signaling (SOCS) revealed that the human SOCS3 gene contains four binding sites for the metal regulatory transcription factor 1 (MTF-1) located within 1600 bp relative to the transcription start site. A series of experiments were carried out with human hepatoma cells (HepG2) and C57BL/6 mice to examine the effect of zinc on the regulation of SOCS3. In addition, we tested the role of MTF-1 in the regulation ...

Role of nutritional zinc in the prevention of osteoporosis.
... Study Title: Role of nutritional zinc in the prevention of osteoporosis.Study Abstract Zinc is known as an essential nutritional factor in the growth of the human and animals. Bone growth retardation is a common finding in various conditions associated with dietary zinc deficiency. Bone zinc content has been shown to decrease in aging, skeletal unloading, and postmenopausal conditions, suggesting its role in bone disorder. Zinc has been demonstrated to have a stimulatory effect on osteoblastic bone formation and mineralization; the metal directly activates aminoacyl-tRNA synthetase, a rate-limiting enzyme ...
Zinc and diabetes — clinical links and molecular mechanisms.

Study Title: Zinc and Diabetes Study Abstract Zinc is an essential trace element crucial for the function of more than 300 enzymes and it is important for cellular processes like cell division and apoptosis. Hence, the concentration of zinc in the human body is tightly regulated and disturbances of zinc homeostasis have been associated with several diseases including diabetes mellitus, a disease characterized by high blood glucose concentrations as a consequence of decreased secretion or action of insulin. Zinc supplementation of animals and humans has been shown to ameliorate glycemic control in type 1 ...
