2.A.5.4.18
Zinc transporter, ZIPT-7.1; regulates sperm activation in nematodes. In spermatids, inactive ZIPT-7.1 localizes to the intracellular membranous organelles, which contain higher levels of zinc than the cytoplasm. When sperm activation is triggered, ZIPT-7.1 activity increases, releasing zinc from internal stores. The resulting increase in cytoplasmic zinc promotes activatioin (Zhao et al. 2018).
