Metallomics as integrated biometal science

  title={Metallomics as integrated biometal science},
  author={Hiroki Haraguchi},
In this paper, ‘‘metallomics’’ is proposed as a new scientific field in order to integrate the research fields related to biometals. Metallomics should be a scientific field in symbiosis with genomics and proteomics, because syntheses and metabolic functions of genes (DNA and RNA) and proteins cannot be performed without the aid of various metal ions and metalloenzymes. In metallomics, metalloproteins, metalloenzymes and other metalcontaining biomolecules are defined as ‘‘metallomes’’, in a… CONTINUE READING
