An electrochemical study of the complexing properties of the beta metallothionein domain with cadmium and/or zinc was performed at PH 8, using differential pulse polarography. The applied technique allows one to obtain well-defined peaks corresponding to the free metal ions as well as providing evidence that different forms of complexation of Cd(II) and Zn(II) with the beta domain exist. The influence of sequential additions of Cd and/or Zn to the beta domain was investigated.
