Biological function of Nickel and its interaction with other minerals in cattles: A review

Author(s):
Anuj Singh, Sandeep Kumar and Ramsawroop
Abstract:
Nickel (Ni) is a silvery-white, hard, ductile metal existing in oxidation states; in biological systems, Ni2+ is the prevalent form. Dietary supplements of Nickel (Ni) can result in an increase in rumen urease activity and can increase growth rate and food conversion efficiency in cattles. Ni may also play role to stimulate or inhibit the release of various hormones. Ni activates certain enzymes related to the breakdown or utilization of carbohydrate, protein and lipid. Ni can induce various effects on the immune system, depending on dose, physicochemical form of the compound and route of exposure.
