Metallothionein-like protein 1B
Class I metallothionein-like protein 1B
The shelf life is related to many factors, storage state, buffer ingredients, storage temperature and the stability of the protein itself. Generally, the shelf life of liquid form is 6 months at -20°C/-80°C. The shelf life of lyophilized form is 12 months at -20°C/-80°C.
Repeated freezing and thawing is not recommended. Store working aliquots at 4°C for up to one week.
Metallothioneins have a high content of cysteine residues that bind various heavy metals (Probable). Functions as metal chelator of nickel (Ni), cadmium (Cd), zinc (Zn) and copper (Cu). Possesses higher affinity for Ni and Cd ions compared to Zn and Cu ions
