Meloni, Gabriele; Crameri, Andrea; Fritz, Günter; Davies, Paul; Brown, David R; Kroneck, Peter M H; Vašák, Milan (2012). The catalytic redox activity of prion protein-Cu(II) is controlled by metal exchange with the Zn(II) -thiolate clusters of Zn(7) metallothionein-3. ChemBioChem, 13(9):1261-1265.

Silencing prion: Copper-catalyzed transformations of prion protein (PrP) lead to the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS), PrP oxidation, and cleavage and aggregation in transmissible spongiphorm encephalopathies. Zn(7) MT-3 efficiently targets Cu(II) bound in different coordination modes to PrP-Cu(II) . By an unusual redox-dependent metal-swap reaction, MT-3 modulates the catalytic redox properties of PrP-Cu(II).
