New sensor tracks zinc in cells

Shifts in zinc's location could be exploited for early diagnosis of prostate cancer

11-Dec-2013

Zinc, an essential nutrient, is found in every tissue in the body. The vast majority of the metal ion is tightly bound to proteins, helping them to perform biological reactions. Tiny amounts of zinc, however, are only loosely bound, or "mobile," and thought to be critical for proper function in ...
