Editorial Reviews

Proceedings of a May 1997 meeting of the European Human Genetic Society, held in Sestri Levante, Italy, exploring the molecular and cellular biology of copper transport and its role in disease, especially Menkes disease. After overviews of copper transport in mammals, health risk models of copper intake, and copper metabolism in the liver, subjects include the cell biology of the Menkes disease protein, mutation spectrum of the gene defective in Menkes disease, treatment of Wilson's disease, and childhood cirrhosis as a disorder of a copper transport gene.
