Graphical View of Domain Structure for InterPro Entry



  • P04732
  • 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
  • Belongs to the metallothionein superfamily. Type 1 family.
