Metallochaperones are soluble proteins involved in metal transport and regulation in vivo. Copper metallochaperones belong to a structural family of metal binding domains displaying a ferredoxin-like fold (betaalphabetabetaalphabeta) and a consensus metal-binding motif MXCXXC. The metal-binding selectivities for this class of proteins are poorly documented so far.
