Abstract

The elution profile of 115Cd-treated and 113Sn-treated extracts, run on Sephadex G-100 showed that soluble proteins were bound to cadmium and tin. Most of the cadmium-protein in Anabaena flos-aquae occurred on exposure to high cadmium concentrations (0.5 and 1.0 pg/ml). The molecular weights of these proteins were between 23 and 26 kD. Tin-binding protein occurred at low tin concentrations (5 and 10 Mg/ml), and the molecular weight was >70,000 kD. The protein (70 kD) was associated with protein-bearing soluble pigments or the phycobiliproteins. Proteins of molecular weights of 22 to 33 kD were bound to metallothionine-like compounds.
