Type 1 metallothionein (ZjMT) is responsible for heavy metal tolerance in Ziziphus jujuba

Abstract

Metallothioneins (MTs) are a family of low molecular weight, cysteine-rich, metal-binding proteins that are able to make cells to uptake heavy metals from the environment. Molecular and functional characterization of this gene family improves understanding of the mechanisms underlying heavy metal tolerance in higher organisms. In this study, a cDNA clone… (More)
