The Helix pomatia metallothionein (MT) system, namely, its two highly specific forms, HpCdMT and HpCuMT, has offered once again an optimum model to study metal–protein specificity. The present work(More)
Metallothioneins (MTs) are a super-family of small, Cys-rich, non-homologous proteins that bind metal ions through the formation of metal-thiolate bonds. Although universally ubiquitous, they exhibit(More)
In Proteomics, gene/protein families including both specialized and non-specialized paralogs are an invaluable tool to study the evolution of structure/function relationships in proteins.(More)
