Abstract:
A technical review summarizes current information on the deficiency characteristics, chemical and biochemical properties, metabolism, and toxicity of nickel (Ni), and its in vivo interactions with 13 other trace elements (especially, with Fe, Cu and Zn). It is concluded that, while evidence has been developed to establish Ni as an essential nutrient (specifically, in enzyme reactions), studies have not defined its explicit metabolic function.(wz)
