Data Sheet

Background: Zinc transporter ZnT-8 is highly expressed in pancreatic β-cells and is a key protein for both zinc accumulation and regulation of insulin secretion. Studies have demonstrated that mice lacking ZnT-8 globally were more susceptible to diet induced obesity. It has been suggested that ZnT-8 contributes to the risk of developing type 2 diabetes through β-cell- and non-β-cell-specific effects.

Application: Functional assays
