This study tested the hypothesis that concentrations of metallothionein-like (MT-like) proteins in fruiting bodies of wild-growing macrofungi reflect exposure to the metals Cd, Cu and Zn. Screening for these proteins was done by taking 44 samples of seven species of macrofungi from two metal-polluted areas in Norway, namely Odda and Sulitjelma. Concentrations of Cd, Cu and Zn were measured in fruiting bodies and topsoil, the highest of which were observed in fruiting bodies – 126 μg g −1 for Cd… CONTINUE READING
