Introduction to Metallomics and Metalloproteomics

About 30% of all proteins bind metal ions. Elevated concentration of trace elements (Fe, Cu, Zn, Se, V, Ca, Mn, Co, and Rb) found in breast tumors when compared to paired healthy tissue (same patient).

Ischemia leads to a significant reduction in the metal binding (Co, Ni, Cu) capacity of albumin. Cell damage may release excess Cu causing further cell damage. Cr deficiency may play a role in ischemic events. Atherosclerosis lesions may have elevated levels of Ca and Zn with very low levels of Cn in surrounding aorta tissue. Cu/Zn ratio also considered significant in the heart tissue of patients suffering atherosclerosis. Cr found to be decreased in the pancreas of diabetic patients and Co, Zn, Fe and Se increased. Superoxide dismutase (Cu/Zn) and alcohol dehydrogenase (Zn) are under-expressed in non-alcoholic fatty liver diseases (associated with type II diabetes and obesity) Matrix malloprotienases (MMP) represent largest human protienase class. Many MMPs are known to be involved in cancer and cancer progression. Aberrant concentration of Fe and Cu are known to be involved in Parkinson’s disease and Alzheimer’s disease.
