Using oligonucleotides with highly conserved cysteine-rich codons as probes, we isolated from a lambda YES Arabidopsis thaliana cDNA library two different sequences, each encodes an unique protein. These proteins, hereby designated as AtMT-q (AtMT-2) and AtMT-k (AtMT-1), are characteristic of metallothionein, carrying 13 and 14 cysteines in a total of 45 and 81 amino acids, respectively.
