Volume 39: Molybdenum and Tungsten: Their Roles in Biological Processes is devoted soley to the vital research area on molybdenum and tungsten and their role in biology. It offers a comprehensive and timely account of this fascinating topic by 40 distinguished international authorities. Topics include: transport, homeostasis, regulation and binding of molybdate and tungstate to proteins, crystallographic characterization, coordination of complexes, and biosynthesis.This work has advanced the understanding of molybdenum metabolism in humans. Studies were conducted in our metabolic research unit to determine the minimal dietary requirement for molybdenum , to assess the effect of ... The diet contained 22 I¼g of molybdenum a day for 102 days, then 467 I¼g a day for 18 days.
