The first article in our Metals in Genetics themed issue is now published online! This themed issue will showcase work presented at the International Conference on Metals and Genetics (ICMG2011) held in Kobe, Japan in September last year.
This Minireview by Michael Aschner and colleagues from Vanderbilt University Medical Centre, Nashville, USA, provides an overview of essential (Cu, Fe, Mn and Zn) and nonessential (Al, As, Cd, Pb and Hg) metal transport and homeostatic processes in cells.
