Role of transition metals in biological systems

Author(s):
Laxmi
Abstract:
Transition metals play pivotal roles in various biological systems, contributing to essential functions ranging from catalysis to signaling. This paper explores the multifaceted roles of transition metals in biological contexts, elucidating their involvement in enzymatic reactions, electron transfer processes, and metalloprotein function. Through intricate coordination chemistry, transition metals facilitate critical biological processes such as oxygen transport, DNA replication, and cellular respiration. Understanding the intricate interplay between transition metals and biomolecules is crucial for deciphering the mechanisms underlying numerous physiological and pathological phenomena. Moreover, insights into the role of transition metals in biological systems hold immense promise for the development of innovative therapeutic interventions and biomimetic technologies.
