15 p, 2.3 MB Biomphalaria glabrata metallothionein : Lacking metal specificity of the protein and missing gene upregulation suggest metal sequestration by exchange instead of through selective binding / Niederwanger, Michael (University of Innsbruck.

The wild-type metallothionein (MT) of the freshwater snail Biomphalaria glabrata and a natural allelic mutant of it in which a lysine residue was replaced by an asparagine residue, were recombinantly expressed and analyzed for their metal-binding features with respect to Cd, Zn and Cu, applying spectroscopic and mass-spectrometric methods.

After the resolution of the 3D structure of the Cd9-aggregate of the Littorina littorea metallothionein (MT), we report here a detailed analysis of the metal binding capabilities of the wild type MT, LlwtMT, and of two truncated mutants lacking either the N-terminal domain, Lltr2MT, or both the N-terminal domain, plus four extra flanking residues (SSVF), Lltr1MT.

13 p, 1.3 MB Does Variation of the Inter-Domain Linker Sequence Modulate the Metal Binding Behaviour of Helix pomatia Cd-Metallothionein? / Gil Moreno, Selene (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química) ; Jiménez Martí, Elena (Universitat de Barcelona. Departament de Genètica) ; Palacios Bonilla, Òscar (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Química) ; Zerbe, Oliver (University of Zurich. Institute of Organic Chemistry) ; Dallinger, Reinhard (University of Innsbruck.

Departament de Genètica)
Snail metallothioneins (MTs) constitute an ideal model to study structure/function relationships in these metal-binding polypeptides. Helix pomatia harbours three MT isoforms: the highly specific CdMT and CuMT, and an unspecific Cd/CuMT, which represent paralogous proteins with extremely different metal binding preferences while sharing high sequence similarity.
