Secondary Information

Protein Function cellular zinc transporter.absorption and metabolism of dietary zinc.
Biochemical Properties ZIP11 has 6 transmembrane domains with the N terminus having an extracellular location . histidine-rich loop is usually found in Zip transporter proteins
Significance in milk Human milk contains less zinc than does bovine milk, with zinc concentrations of both decreasing throughout lactation.Lowering the pH further decreased zinc bioavailability from human milk, but not from cow's milk.
Site(s) of PTM(s)

N-glycosylation, O-glycosylation,
Predicted Disorder Regions 1 disordered segment; (150-186)
DisProt Annotation

Additional Comments when dietary zinc intake is compromised, the colon may increase zinc transporter expression to improve the efficiency for absorption via increased expression of specific zinc transporters, including ZIP11 and also zinc transporter Slc39a4
