Metal-binding affinity of the transmembrane site in ZntA: implications for metal selectivity.


ZntA, a P1B-type ATPase, confers resistance specifically to Pb2+, Zn2+, and Cd2 in Escherichia coli. Inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry measurements show that ZntA binds two metal ions with high affinity, one in the N-terminal domain and another in the transmembrane domain. Both sites can bind monovalent and divalent metal ions. Two proteins… (More)
