Item description for Transition Metals in Microbial Metabolism by Gunther Winkelmann...

Accustomed as we are to thinking of life processes in terms of organic molecules, we should not forget that inorganic entities, particularly transition metal ions, are also integrally involved. Recent developments in biology and spectroscopic techniques have revolutionized our knowledge of the biological function of transition metal ions involved in microbial metabolism. Indeed there seems to be little doubt that the earliest biological reaction must have been catalyzed by simple inorganic minerals, hence it should not be too surprising that microbes express the widest range of metalloenzymes. While it is clear that metal ions must have been important early contributors to life, the fact that they are still involved suggests that they provide services which cannot be performed adequately by organic molecules. Metal ions can be involved in processes as varied as structure stabilization, transport of small molecules (e.g., oxygen), or catalysis. In this book the key role played by iron,
