Many cell types contain metal-ion unsaturated metallothionein (MT). Considering the Zn(2+) binding affinity of metallothionein, the existence of this species in the intracellular environment constitutes a substantial "thermodynamic sink". Indeed, the mM concentration of glutathione may be thought of in
