Metabolism of Cr, Ni, Co, Mo and Se

In this lecture ´´Metabolism of Cr, Ni, Co, Mo and Se´´ are explained. Section one is about ´´Chromium´´. Earlier in this section, chromium: distribution and source are elaborated. This is followed by absorption and excretion. Then functions are reported. Likewise, clinical significance is discussed.

Nickle and Cobalt
Section two is about ''Nickle and Cobalt''. At first, nickel: source and distribution are elaborated. Then functions are highlighted. Subsequently, toxicity and clinical significance is pursued. Next is the elucidation of cobalt. Following this, absorption and excretion is discussed. Then discussion continues on functions. Moreover, deficiency and excess of cobalt is covered by the educator. In the end, role as cofactor is highlighted.

Section three is about ''Molybdenum''. Initially, educator introduces molybdenum. Alongside, its source and requirement are explained. After that functions: role in enzyme action is discussed. Then functions: relation with copper utilization is elaborated.

Section four is about ''Selenium''. After comprehensively introducing selenium, educator focuses selenium: principal source. Then absorption and excretion is discussed. Blood and tissue levels is discussed later on. This followed by metabolic role. Moreover, relation with vitamin E is pursued. Likewise, educator explains relation with heavy metals.

Selenium Toxicity
Section five is about ''Selenium Toxicity''. Prime emphasis is on selenium toxicity. The next slide focuses selenium toxicity: chronic poisoning. Then toxicity in humans is elaborated. Following this, elucidation of selenium deficiency is given. Furthermore, clinical aspect is focused. Later on, kaschinbeck disease is explained. Educator also gives information about recommended dietary allowances. This is followed by clinical significance.
