Metallothionein-2

Gene

MT2A

Organism
Canis lupus familiaris (Dog) (Canis familiaris)
Status

Domaini

Class I metallothioneins contain 2 metal-binding domains: four divalent ions are chelated within cluster A of the alpha domain and are coordinated via cysteinyl thiolate bridges to 11 cysteine ligands. Cluster B, the corresponding region within the beta domain, can ligate three divalent ions to 9 cysteines.
