Two homogenous fractions of hepatic metallothioneins ((Cd,Zn) MT-1 and (Cd,Zn) MT-2) and renal metal binding proteins ((Bi,Cu) BP-1 and (Bi,Cu) BP-2) were isolated from rats exposed to heavy metals and specific antisera to them were produced in rabbits. These antisera were tested by immunodiffusion and immunoelectrophoresis for their ability to bind… CONTINUE READING
