Human nutrition faculty, master's graduate publish work on copper in the heart

By Denis M Medeiros

Denis Medeiros, associate dean of the College of Human Ecology, Dingbo Lin, research assistant professor of human nutrition, and Jean Getz, 2009 master's graduate in human nutrition, were published in the most recent issue of Biological Trace Element Research, a central forum for interdisciplinary research on the biological, environmental, and biomedical roles of trace elements.

The trio's publication, "The cardiac copper chaperone proteins Scol and CCS are up-regulated, but Cox 1 and Cox 4 are down-regulated, by copper deficiency," can be read here.
