NCBI Summary for MT2
This gene is a member of the metallothionein family of genes. Proteins encoded by this gene family are low in molecular weight, are cysteine-rich, lack aromatic residues, and bind divalent heavy metal ions, altering the intracellular concentration of heavy metals in the cell. These proteins act as anti-oxidants, protect against hydroxyl free radicals, are important in homeostatic control of metal in the cell, and play a role in detoxification of heavy metals. The encoded protein interacts with the protein encoded by the homeobox containing 1 gene in some cell types, controlling intracellular zinc levels, affecting apoptotic and autophagy pathways. Some polymorphisms in this gene are associated with an increased risk of cancer. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2017]
UniProt Comments for MT2
MT2A: Metallothioneins have a high content of cysteine residues that bind various heavy metals; these proteins are transcriptionally regulated by both heavy metals and glucocorticoids. Belongs to the metallothionein superfamily. Type 1 family.

Protein type: Carrier

Chromosomal Location of Human Ortholog: 16q13

Cellular Component: cytoplasm; cytosol; nucleus; perinuclear region of cytoplasm

Molecular Function: drug binding; protein binding; zinc ion binding

Biological Process: cellular copper ion homeostasis; negative regulation of growth; response to metal ion
