InterPro : IPR015304

Name  ZinT domain Short Name  ZinT_dom
Type  Domain Description  This domain is found in prokaryotic proteins that were first identified as part of the response of bacteria to a challenge with the toxic heavy metal cadmium. They are able to bind to cadmium and ensure its subsequent elimination []. Previously known YodA, these proteins have been renamed as ZinT, and have been shown to bind zinc with high affinity. They may play a role in zinc homeostasis and growth under zinc limited conditions [].
