The presence of a zinc-inducible metallothionein in mouse thymus tissue has been shown, together with an age-related modulation of zinc, metallothionein, and thymus mass. Metallothionein (MT) and zinc concentrations were found to be maximum prior to completion of thymic growth and to be at a minimum when development of the thymus had ceased. Subsequent… (More)
