Description 
The zinc transporter ZIP8, also known as SLC39A9, is a member of a family of divalent ion transporters. Zinc is an essential ion for cells and plays significant roles in the growth, development, and differentiation. The zinc transporter family is divided into four subfamilies (I, II, LIV-1 and gufA). ZIP8 is glycosylated and located at the plasma membrane and mitochondria. It has been identified as the transporter responsible for transport of the toxic Cadmium cation. ZIP8 has also been suggested to play a role in the regulation of interferon-gamma expression in activated human T cells.
