  • In vivo zinc toxicity phenotypes provide a sensitized background that suggests zinc transport activities for most of the Drosophila Zip and ZnT genes. Lye JC, Richards CD, Dechen K, Warr CG, Burke R. J Biol Inorg Chem. 2013 Mar;18(3):323-32. doi: 10.1007/s00775-013-0976-6. Epub 2013 Jan 17.

  • Compartmentalized zinc deficiency and toxicities caused by ZnT and Zip gene over expression result in specific phenotypes in Drosophila. Dechen K, Richards CD, Lye JC, Hwang JE, Burke R. Int J Biochem Cell Biol. 2015 Mar;60:23-33. doi: 10.1016/j.biocel.2014.12.017. Epub 2015 Jan 3.
