Nature's Shrink-wrapped Metal Thiolate Clusters: Mechanistic Complexity Vies with Structural Simplicity in the Metallothioneins
Martin Stillman
Metallothionein (MT), a small cysteine rich metal binding protein, has been implicated in a number of physiological functions, including metal ion homeostasis, toxic metal detoxification and protection against oxidative stress. ESI-MS equilibrium and kinetic data provide new insight into the actual stepwise metallation of metallothioneins. This mechanism appears to be general based on our analysis of three key metals.

Multifunctional Materials for Electronics and Photonics
Federico Rosei
The bottomup approach is considered a potential alternative for low cost manufacturing of nanostructured materials. It is based on the concept of self-assembly of nanostructures on a substrate, and is emerging as an alternative paradigm for traditional top down fabrication used in the semiconductor industry. We demonstrate various strategies to control nanostructure assembly (both organic and inorganic) at the nanoscale.

Benefits Canada
Employers across Canada are employing innovative methods to combat labour shortages, according to a Fraser Institute study. "While the breadth of Canada's labour shortage is debatable, tight labour markets exist in certain parts of the country, including Western Canada, where employers are taking steps to enhance their existing labour force without hiring new workers," says Philip Cross, author of the study and former chief economic analyst for Statistics Canada.
