Copper is an important trace element that plays a very important role in the biochemistry of all living organisms and affects enzymes activity as a cofactor or as a fundamental structure of many metalloenzymes as superoxide dismutase, ceruloplasmin, lysyl oxidase, cytochrome oxidase and tyrosinase. Therefore copper is essential for cellular respiration, free radical defence, neurotransmitter function connective and tissue biosynthesis. Excessive copper accumulation is toxic in all species as it… Expand
