    Abstract: Metallothioneins (MTs) are cysteine-rich proteins, which have been implicated in regulation of physiological processes, such as cell growth, repair, differentiation, apoptosis and immunoregulation, as well as in the protection against heavy metals, oxidant damages, inflammation and other stressful conditions. To investigate their roles in physiolog... Show More
