  12. this is the first study to report a significant association between the R325W C-allele of SLC30A8 and increased risk of developing gestational diabetes mellitus. All of the autoantibody positive women with GDM who developed postpartum type 1 diabetes were positive for autoantibodies against glutamic acid decarboxylase. Thus ZnT8A did not have any additional predictive value in postpartum development of type 1 diabetes. PMID: 27003436
  13. Although previous meta-analyses have shown that this association was only found in Asian and European groups, and not in African populations, our analysis revealed the deleterious effect of SLC30A8 rs13266634 on type 2 diabetes mellitus in an African population when stratified by ethnicity under additive model even with a small number of studies.

  26. Suggest rs3019885 SLC30A8 SNP is not a susceptibility factor for abdominal aortic aneurysms in an Italian population. PMID: 24423473

  32. Our study suggested that the C allele of rs13266634 was associated with higher odds of T2D, and higher plasma zinc was associated with lower odds. The inverse association of plasma zinc concentrations with T2D was modified by SLC30A8 rs13266634. PMID: 24306209
  33. Antibodies for ZnT8 is related to age and metabolic status at diagnosis as well as HLA genotype but does not significantly improve the detection rate of beta-cell autoimmunity in Finnish children and adolescents affected by Type 1 diabetes. PMID: 23861236
  34. SLC30A8 haploinsufficiency protects against type 2 diabetes, suggesting ZnT8 inhibition as a therapeutic strategy in type 2 diabetes prevention. PMID: 24584071
  35. Men with two copies of the allele that protects against type 2 diabetes showed less post-exercise bout strength loss, less soreness, and lower creatine kinase values. PMID: 24101675
