As the transport of cadmium to the kidney is dependent on its metallothionein binding in plasma, the distribution of cadmium within the body found after an acute exposure will be different from that found after repeated exposures.

MT stands for detoxification! The protection against adverse effects caused by cadmium exposure follows from the ratio of non-MT-bound to MTbound cadmium [1].
