About this book

In addition to looking at the toxicity effects of metal, this text explores the role of metal ions in normal metabolisms, examining both prokaryotes and eukaryotes.


Overview of cellular inorganic metabolism and the need for gene regulation, Simon Silver and William Walden; regulation of bacterial iron transoprt by Fur protein, Klaus Hantke and Volkmar Braun; bacterial mercury resistance, the MerR paradigm; metal cation regulation in Gram positive bacteria, John Helmann; copper resistance and other cation-regulated two-component regulatory systems, Nigel L. Brown and Barry T.O. Lee; bacterial oxyanion regulated systems - phosphate, phosphonate, sulfate and others, Barry Wanner; copper regulation in yeast, Dennis R. Winge; metallothionein and iron regulation in yeast, Dennis Thiele; translational level regulation of iron in animal cells, Helmut Beinert et al; copper diseases in man, Julian Mercer, David Danks and James Camakarais; metallothionein and phytochelatin regulation in higher plants and blue greens, Nigel J. Robinson; metallothionein and phytochelatin regulation in higher plants, Peter B. Goldsbrough; regulation of ferritin synthesis in plants, Jean Francois Briat; copper regulation of plastocyanin and cytochrome c6in algea, Sabeeha Merchant.
