Vitamin D status declines with age in most western societies at moderate latitudes, due to declining sunlight exposure and declining ability of the skin to synthesise cholecalciferol. In ambulant elderly subjects, some seasonal variation in serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D is maintained, but in those in...

Zinc transporters of both the SLC39 and SLC30 families are expressed in the small intestinal and placental epithelia, indicating a potential role in dietary zinc absorption and in maternal-fetal zinc exchange. The association of mutations in hZIP4 (SLC39A4) with the human zinc deficiency disease...

A great deal of research has been directed towards delineating the mechanisms of action and behavioural effects of a number of traditional herbal medications originating from Asia and the Far East, in particular Ginkgo biloba and members of the Panax genus (ginseng). Whilst Europe has an equally...

The element chromium in the trivalent oxidation state may be a nutrient, although current nutritional evidence is ambiguous. If Cr is essential, then a biomolecule should exist that specifically binds Cr and has a specific physiological function, and mechanisms should be in operation in cells to...

Iron is one of the most abundant metals in the human body. However, it is only recently that many of the molecular mechanisms involved in the absorption and metabolism of this essential trace element have been elucidated. Dietary non-haem iron is absorbed via the divalent metal transporter (DMT1)...
