CC   -!- FUNCTION: Metallothioneins have a high content of cysteine
CC       residues that bind various heavy metals. Acts as reactive oxygen
CC       species (ROS) scavenger in the cytosol. Possesses superoxide anion
CC       and hydroxyl radical scavenging activities in vitro. Plays a role
CC       during root development, lateral root initiation and seed embryo
CC       germination, possibly by regulating levels of cytokinin.
CC       {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:A3AZ88}.
CC   -!- SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Cytoplasm, cytosol
CC       {ECO:0000250|UniProtKB:A3AZ88}.
CC   -!- SIMILARITY: Belongs to the metallothionein superfamily. Type 15
CC       family. {ECO:0000305}.
