i am interested in the coordination of metal ions, zinc and copper, by peptides.
and would be interested to hear about good reveiw articles on the subject as 
well as general information.

My particular interest would be for information concerning the structural 
alterations that occur upon coordination. helix-coil- beta sheet and the like, and 
especially how these changes could be investigated.

i am aware of the fact that predominately histidine and glutamic acid are the 
favoured amino acid residue ligands, but information about the coordination 
geometry and structure would be greatly appreciated.
