Arie Moran opened the final session, on Monday morning, with a talk on ZnT-1 modulation of calcium current in cardiac myocytes and the possible implications for atrial fibrillation. Irina Korichneva continued the cardiac theme, discussing zinc and PKC activation in the heart and the protective effect of zinc in myocardial ischemia and reperfusion. In the final talk of the meeting, Jae Koh discussed pathways involved in the death of neurons overloaded with zinc.
Overall, the meeting underlined the many roles for intracellular zinc and the interdisciplinary nature of current research into the biology of zinc signaling.
