CC   -!- FUNCTION: The metallothioneins are involved in the cellular
CC       sequestration of toxic metal ions and regulation of essential
CC       trace elements. This isoform binds exclusively copper.
CC   -!- DOMAIN: 14 cysteine residues are arranged in C-X-C groups. These
CC       are thought to be the metal-binding sites in other
CC       metallothioneins.
CC   -!- SIMILARITY: Belongs to the metallothionein superfamily. Type 2
CC       family. {ECO:0000305}.
