- Richards C, Warr C, Burke R. A role for dZIP89B in Drosophila dietary zinc uptake reveals additional complexity in the zinc absorption process. Int J Biochem Cell Biol. 2015;69:11-9 pubmed publisher..We postulate that dZIP89B works in concert with the closely related dZIP42C.1 and 2 to ensure optimal zinc absorption under a range of dietary conditions. ..
