The gamma-glutamyl peptide induced in Schizosaccharomyces pombe in response to metal stress has been purified following exposure of the organism to cadmium and copper salts. Induction of the peptide enables S. pombe to proliferate in media containing high concentrations of cadmium and copper. Two Cd-gamma-Glu peptide complexes are produced which differ in the content of acid-labile sulfur. One Cu-gamma-Glu peptide complex is induced, and it lacks acid-labile sulfur in the metal-binding cluster… CONTINUE READING
