Predicted subcellular localisation of the identified ZIP transporters within human and rodent β-cells. Based on the data analysed in the present study ZIP6, ZIP7, ZIP9, ZIP13 and ZIP14 in human, and the same transporters in addition to ZIP1 in rodent appear to be of particular importance for β-cell biology and pathology. Zinc Transporter 8 (ZnT8) which transports zinc into the insulin granules is also shown. ER = endoplasmic reticulum; TGN = trans-Golgi network
