Summary: ZIP Zinc transporter
The Pfam group coordinates the annotation of Pfam families in Wikipedia, but we have not yet assigned a Wikipedia article to this family. If you think that a particular Wikipedia article provides good annotation, please let us know.
ZIP Zinc transporter Provide feedback
The ZIP family consists of zinc transport proteins and many putative metal transporters. The main contribution to this family is from the Arabidopsis thaliana ZIP protein family these proteins are responsible for zinc uptake in the plant . Also found within this family are C. elegans proteins of unknown function which are annotated as being similar to human growth arrest inducible gene product, although this protein in not found within this family.

InterPro entry IPR003689These ZIP zinc transporter proteins define a family of metal ion transporters that are found in plants, protozoa, fungi, invertebrates, and vertebrates, making it now possible to address questions of metal ion accumulation and homeostasis in diverse organisms [PUBMED:9618566].

This clan contains a variety of transporters which have 4, 5, 9 or 10 membrane spanning helices. Many of the 10 membrane spanning transporters appear to be a duplication of the 5 spanning unit . Many of these families contain a characteristic glycine rich motif close to the C-terminus.

We make a range of alignments for each Pfam-A family:
- the curated alignment from which the HMM for the family is built
- the alignment generated by searching the sequence database using the HMM
- Representative Proteomes (RPs) at 15%, 35%, 55% and 75% co-membership thresholds
- alignment generated by searching the NCBI sequence database using the family HMM
- alignment generated by searching the metagenomics sequence database using the family HMM
You can see the alignments as HTML or in three different sequence viewers:
- Pfam viewer
- an HTML-based viewer that uses DAS to retrieve alignment fragments on request
