Abstract

The three sections of this monograph deal with iron, copper, and less well-known metals such as cobalt and zinc, with each chapter summarizing current knowledge of the normal function for each metal and describing the effect of deficiencies or excesses of the metal ions on mammalian organs. Fundamental aspects of liver physiology, (enzyme biochemistry, transport and binding mechanisms, and cellular metabolism) and clinical aspects are discussed. For hepatologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, cell biologists, and basic research scientists.
