    Abstract

    1. 1. A low-molecular weight metal-binding protein has been found in the liver of the dogfish (Scyliorhinus canicula) in both control and cadmium-treated animals and in both male and female animals. 2. 2. This protein is present as Zn,Cu-protein in control and as Cd,Zn,Cu-protein in cadmium-treated (both water and i.p. administration) animals. 3. 3. This hepatic protein was characterized as metallothionein from several properties related to mammalian metallothionein. 4. 4. A different response to cadmium administration between sexes is suggested. © 1986.
