Title Isolation and properties of cadmium-binding protein induced in rat small intestine by oral administration of cadmium
Bibliographic information Mar. 1982, Vol.9, No.3, p.401-409. Illus. 33 ref.
Abstract Chromatographic properties and amino acid composition of Cd-binding protein are reported. The chromatogram showed 2 major and 1 minor Cd-containing peaks as hepatic and renal metallothionein. The amino acid composition of the peaks resembled that of metallothionein from other materials. Induced intestinal Cd-binding protein may be capable of preventing the transport of oral Cd from the intestinal mucosa into other organs.
