metalloprotein

 [mĕ-tal″o-pro´tēn]
a protein molecule bound to a metal ion, e.g., hemoglobin.

me·tal·lo·pro·tein

(mĕ-tal-ō-prō'tēn),
A protein with a tightly bound metal ion or ions; for example, hemoglobin.

metalloprotein

/me·tal·lo·pro·tein/ (-pro´tēn) a protein molecule with a bound metal ion, e.g., hemoglobin.

metalloprotein

[mətal′ōprō′tēn]
a protein that contains one or more metal atoms.

me·tal·lo·pro·tein

(mĕ-tal'ō-prō'tēn)
A protein with a tightly bound metal ion or ions; e.g., hemoglobin.

metalloprotein

a PROTEIN containing a metal atom; examples are HAEMOGLOBIN, where the metal, iron, is a functional group, and ZINC FINGER, where the metal, zinc, is a structural feature. In addition, many ENZYMES require metal cations such as Ca++ @or Mg++ for activity.
