We report the sequence of the Mto gene, one of the two known metallothionein genes of Drosophila melanogaster, and compare its structure with that of the other metallothionein gene, Mtn. The main structural features are the presence of a small intron (61 base-pairs), the presence of four potential MREs (metal regulatory elements) and the absence of a TATA(More)
Toxicity of cadmium on Drosophila cell lines has been studied. Maximal tolerance for cadmium chloride is 10 microM. Metallothioneins are induced in Drosophila cells following cadmium addition. A stable cadmium resistant cell line (Cd R200) has been selected starting from the haploid D clone. The Cd R200 cells are diploid and display metallothionein levels(More)
Preventing accumulation of static charges and finding means for its elimination have been topics of active research in the field of electrostatic separation technologies for granular mixtures of insulating mixtures. Four installations are examined as potential solutions for the neutralization of the residual charges in separation processes. The experiments(More)
We have selected a metallothionein (MT) cDNA clone from a cadmium-resistant Drosophila melanogaster cell line. This clone includes an open reading frame coding for a 43-amino acid protein whose characteristics are a high cysteine content (12 cysteines, 28% of all residues) and a lack of aromatic amino acids. This protein differs markedly from the Drosophila(More)
