Other Biological Examples

Postby Isaiah Little 1A 14B » Sat Nov 18, 2017 6:42 pm

I really found the whole TM and biological significance section interesting. What are some other examples of vital TM complexes other than the ones we learned in class?

Chromium has a very interesting biological function. It assists insulin by helping it control blood sugar, I believe.

I also believe that Cobalt gives Vitamin B12 its red color, Also iron for instance with myoglobin and hemoglobin helps transport oxygen throughout the blood stream.

Chlorophyll is also another biological example, with a very similar structure to that of hemoglobin.
