As mentioned in Chapters 8 and 9, the useful functions of MAAs, such as the anti-glycative property and collagenase inhibitory activity, might be associated with their metal chelating activity. Although there are few reports on the metal-chelating activity of MAAs, a chelating model of MAAs and metal ions has recently been proposed. This chapter briefly summarizes these observations.

Keywords: Chelating, Euhalothece-362, Mycosporine-2-glycine.
