Abstract

The electrochemical behaviour of zinc metallothionein (MT) from commercially available rabbit liver with respect to solution pH, as well as the influence of the addition of cadmium and/or zinc, was studied using differential pulse polarography and square wave voltammetry. This Zn MT has an extremely low content of cadmium in the molecule. The complexation equilibrium of dissociation and the formation from their depleted form was investigated, going from basic to acid solution and vice versa. The results are described in this paper.
