30-31 Since zinc and iron are not likely to cross the apical membrane via the same transporters (DMT-1 and Zip4, respectively), it is possible that the intestinal sequestration of zinc (discussed above) may interfere with intracellular trafficking of iron. Further research on factors regulating intestinal iron and zinc metabolism is clearly needed. 5. CONCLUSION Based on our studies on human infants, rat pups and cells in culture, it appears that some caution is warranted with regard to trace element supplementation of infants.

Additionally, we have detected Zip3 expression in the mammary gland and like other Zip family members,52-55 Zip3 is localised to the plasma membrane in mammary epithelial cells. Taken together, these data suggest that Zip3 may play a unique regulatory role in mammary gland Zn import and thus ultimately in milk Zn secretion. We used the lactating rat as a model and determined that, similar to observations in humans,56 the plasma Zn concentration of lactating rats increases to pre-pregnancy levels as lactation progresses.
