Many studies have focused on the metal-binding peptides of plants because these peptides are crucial molecules for maintaining metal homeostasis and responding to metal stresses in plants. The metal-binding peptides have also been noted as promising molecules for phytoremediation (Chaney et al. 1997; Pilon-Smits 2005) . Phytochelatins and metallothioneins have been well characterized as plant metal-binding peptides (Clemens 2001;
