Recommendations on the molecular diagnosis of AE were detailed in a clinical utility gene card [50].

One form is reported to occur in infants feeding on zinc deficient maternal milk and the other form is seen in individuals that are suffering from a metabolic deficiency that has zinc deficiency as a side effect.

The process by which the ZIP1 molecule prevents the release of zinc is unknown. It is important to note that binding events of the ZIP1 are in binding equilibrium and are not an all-or-none event. Zinc binds to or is released by the ZIP1 depending on its intracellular concentration. As a result, less zinc is bound to ZIP1 when cytoplasmic zinc levels decrease, causing the translocation of zinc from the zincosomes to the cytoplasm. In this way, ZIP1 contributes to intracellular zinc homoeostasis [59].
