Part Description

LP16828-3   Molybdenum
Molybdenum (atomic symbol Mo) is an essential trace element, required for the enzymes xanthine oxidase, aldehyde oxidase, and nitrate reductase. It is present in very small amounts in the body. Molybdenum is thought to be involved in many important biological processes, including development of the nervous system, waste processing in the kidneys, and energy production in cells. High levels of molybdenum can interfere with the body's uptake of copper, producing copper deficiency. Molybdenum measurements can be used for assessing nutrition (as in total parenteral nutrition, TPN), molybdenum cofactor deficiency, and following patients with molybdenum-containing prostheses.

Veterinary Medicine:
Molybdenum toxicity can occur in cattle or sheep grazing on pastures with alkaline soil or soil contaminated with industrial sources of molybdenum. Molybdenosis in animals results in secondary copper deficiency and presents with a variety of symptoms, including diarrhea, anemia, anorexia, depigmentation on hair or wool, neurologic abnormalities, impaired reproduction, and premature death.(Mineral Tolerance of Animals: Second Revised Edition, 2005) Source: Regenstrief LOINC
