Metallothionein isoform gene expression in zinc-treated human peripheral blood lymphocytes.


Zinc plays an important role in the maintenance of the immune system. While the mechanisms of zinc ions interaction with immune cells are still poorly understood, a striking concurrent effect of zinc is the induction of the biosynthesis of metallothioneins (MT), a group of low molecular weight, cysteine-rich metal-binding proteins, believed to play a role… (More)
