This report intends to provide the reader with a deeper insight in the chemical, and extensively biological, characteristics of the metallothionein (MT) system. We have devoted nearly 20 years to the study of MTs and this has allowed us to form what we believe is a more complete picture of this peculiar family of metalloproteins. At the beginning of the 1990s, the landscape of this field was quite different from the overall picture we have now. Many researchers have contributed to the… CONTINUE READING
