Metal-binding proteins and peptides in bioremediation and phytoremediation of heavy metals

Mejáre, M LU and Bülow, L LU (2001) In Trends in Biotechnology 19(2). p.67-73
Abstract

The expression of metal-binding proteins or peptides in microorganisms and plants in order to enhance heavy metal accumulation and/or tolerance has great potential. Several different peptides and proteins have been explored. This review focuses on cadmium (Cd) because of the significant importance of this metal and because of its global presence in many food materials.
