Abstract

Metallothioneins have been extensively studied in many different eukaryotes where they sequester, and hence detoxify, excess amounts of certain metal ions. However, the precise functions of many of these molecules are not fully understood. This article reviews literature concerning their namesakes in prokaryotes.
