A novel arsenic methyltransferase gene of Westerdykella aurantiaca isolated from arsenic contaminated soil: phylogenetic, physiological, and biochemical studies and its role in arsenic bioremediation

Shikha Verma et al., Metallomics, 2016, 8, 344, DOI:10.1039/C5MT00277J

The authors identify a novel arsenic methyltransferase from a soil fungus. The methyltransferase mainly converts inorganic arsenicals such as arsenite arsenate to volatile methylated arsenic species. The observation may be useful for bioremediation of arsenic-contaminated soil.

Zinc sensing by metal-responsive transcription factor 1 (MTF1) controls metallothionein and ZnT1 expression to buffer the sensitivity of the transcriptome response to zinc

J. E. J. Hardyman et al., Metallomics, 2016, 8, 337, DOI:10.1039/C5MT00305A

Metal-responsive transcription factor 1 (MTF-1) is known as a transcription factor sensing an intracellular zinc concentration. In this paper, some gene expressions are indirectly controlled by MTF-1 via the expressions of metallothioneins and an efflux transporter of zinc (ZnT-1) which are directly regulated by MTF-1.

Natural Hg isotopic composition of different Hg compounds in mammal tissues as a proxy for in vivo breakdown of toxic methylmercury

Vincent Perrot et al., Metallomics, 2016, 8, 170, DOI:10.1039/C5MT00286A

The authors reveal the metabolism of methylmercury in marine mammals by the analysis of precise isotopic ratio of mercury. This approach is unique to clarify the detoxification of methylmercury.

High-resolution complementary chemical imaging of bio-elements in Caenorhabditis elegans

Dominic J. Hare et al., Metallomics, 2016, 8, 156, DOI:10.1039/C5MT00288E

The authors demonstrate the multi-elemental imaging in C. elegans by X-ray fluorescence microscopy. This technique is expected to be widely applicable for biology in metals.

The copper transporter 1 (CTR1) is required to maintain the stability of copper transporter 2 (CTR2)

Cheng-Yu Tsai et al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 1477, DOI:10.1039/C5MT00131E

There are two copper influx transporters in mammalian cells, CTR1 and CTR2. The authors clearly show that the defection of CTR1 reduces the stability of CTR2 protein. This is the first paper revealing the direct interaction between two copper influxers involved in copper homeostasis.

Loss of pdr-1/parkin influences Mn homeostasis through altered ferroportin expression in C. elegans
Michael Aschner et. al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 847–856, DOI: 10.1039/C5MT00052A

An interesting hypothesis, namely that increased Mn accumulation in worms lacking pdr-1, a parkin homolog, is due to changes in Mn transport was tested in this paper. The authors found evidence that Mn export is reduced in worms without pdr-1, consistent with the idea that metal ion imbalance is connected to Parkinsonism.

Synthesis of nickel–iron hydrogenase in Cupriavidus metallidurans is controlled by metal-dependent silencing and un-silencing of genomic islands
Dietrich H. Nies et. al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 632–649, DOI: 10.1039/C4MT00297K

This paper presents a series of complementary experiments highlighting connections between zinc homeostasis and the expression of nickel-dependent proteins.

Back to the metal age: battle for metals at the host–pathogen interface during urinary tract infection
Harry L. T. Mobley et. al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 935–942, DOI: 10.1039/C4MT00329B

Any bioinorganic chemist who has ever watched the havoc UTIs cause in the elderly will find this summary of metal-dependent host-pathogen interactions a very satisfying article to read.

Proteomic analysis of the copper resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae
Xuesong Sun et. al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 448–454, DOI: 10.1039/C4MT00276H

Two dimensional electrophoresis coupled with mass spectrometry and quantitative reverse transcription PCR point to the importance of cell wall biosynthesis in the defense response of Streptococcus pneumonia to elevated levels of copper.

Understanding metal homeostasis in primary cultured neurons. Studies using single neuron subcellular and quantitative metallomics
Robert A. Colvin et. al., Metallomics, 2015, 7, 1111–1123, DOI: 10.1039/C5MT00084J

A beautiful paper highlighting the power of synchrotron radiation X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) to provide quantitative information about the metal distribution within a single cell and to compliment knowledge about in vivo metal ion localization gleaned from other types of measurements

A collection of papers in memory of Professor Robert Williams

Professor Robert Williams, Oxford, inorganic, Biological ChemistryProfessor Robert (Bob) Williams died this March at the age of 89.

Zinc in the Biosciences Themed Issue – now available online

metal- and cyanate-binding site with His316 and Trp237 as potential H-bond donorsMetallomics is pleased to present its latest Themed Issue on the topic of  ‘Zinc in the Biosciences‘, showcasing some of the latest developments in zinc biology. Zinc is important for cellular functions in all organ systems. Its global roles are unlike those of any other transition metal ion and more similar to those of magnesium and calcium ions. With this Themed Issue, we provide a flavour of latest developments in zinc biology, and highlight the bright future of the field.

This collection comprises a selection of excellent Reviews, Communications and Papers and is accompanied by an Editorial by Metallomics Editorial Board Chair, Professor Wolfgang Maret.
