Metallothionein-like protein 4A

Gene

MT4A

Organism
Arabidopsis thaliana (Mouse-ear cress)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: Annotation score: 3 out of 5-Experimental evidence at transcript leveli

Functioni

Metallothioneins have a high content of cysteine residues that bind various heavy metals (Probable). Functions as metal chelator of copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn) (PubMed:18287486). Plays a role in storing and distributing Zn ion in seed (PubMed:22014117).Curated2 Publications

Miscellaneous

Plants silencing both MT4A and MT4B have reduced seed weight and reduced seedling growth after germination.1 Publication
