Abstract— In recent years, the protozoan Tetrahymena is used as a model to detect aquatic toxicity and eco-toxicological effects with its application as a “whole-cell biosensor” (WCB) to be the mostly known for the environmental monitoring of heavy metal pollution. This review attempts to summarize the current state of knowledge of identified metalloprotein coding genes in Tetrahymena pyriformis and thermophile species..
Keywords— metalloproteins, protozoan, Tetrahymena, whole-cell biosensor (WCB).
