Cover Story (view full-size image): After determining the 3D structure of Littorina littorea metallothionein (Angew. Chem. Int. Ed., 2017, 56, 4617-4622) and its recognition in Science (2017, 356(6334), 150-151), in this work we analyze in depth the in vivo and in vitro metal binding capabilities of this 3-dominial metalloprotein and of two truncated mutants. We conclude that a Cd-specific metallothionein protein confers this snail a particular adaptive advantage in its changeable marine habitat. View this paper
