Local concentrations of any element can vary from those given here an orders of magnitude or so and values in various literature sources for less common elements do seem to vary considerably. Abundances for molybdenum in a number of different environments.
Molybdenum Mo is an essential nutrient for animals and humans. Tissue content of molybdenum is low, with the highest concentrations in the liver, kidney, adrenal gland and bone. It is a component of a number of enzymes, including sulfite oxidase involved in the metabolism of sulfur amino acids , xanthine oxidase involved in the oxidation of …
Introduction. Molybdenum Mo is an essential nutrient in plants and animals. Thorough reviews on Mo have been published Dick, 1956, Underwood, 1977, Ward, 1978, Friberg and Lener, 1986, Mills and Davis, 1987, Rajagopalan, 1988, Nielsen, 1996, Johnson, 1997, National Research Council NRC , 2006, Gould and Kendall, 2011 .In plants and microbes, reduction of nitrate to nitrite and nitrogen ...

If common circumstances are able to increase molybdenum deficiency risk, we have yet to see science-based evidence in this regard. Relationship with Other Nutrients We sometimes see sources that suggest that too much molybdenum could deplete copper levels.
Despite having lower molybdenum concentrations than other food sources, milk and cheese products provide most of the dietary molybdenum in youth, accounting for 27–40% of intake, by virtue of the amount consumed. For adults, grain products are the primary source of dietary molybdenum, accounting for 19–20% of intake 5, 6 . Clinical Uses
It is much more common than molybdenum cofactor deficiency but is not a lethal defect. Molybdenum deficiency has been produced in goats on a diet with a molybdenum content of only 24 μg/kg dry weight Anke et al., 1985 . It has been induced in chicks and rats, but only after tungsten was added at a ratio of 1000:1 Anke et al., 1985 .
contains potential concentrations of heavy metals such as As, Se,Cr, Zn,Mo, V, Cd, and Ni, besides U. This is the case of the oilshale in Jordan Abed and Amireh 1983;Abedetal.2009 . Consequently, Mo, tied up in bituminous limestone and phosphate deposits common in the rock units of the study area, can be released from
concentrations are low, molybdenum fertilizers can be applied. o Sodium molybdate is the most common form of molybdenum fertilizer. It can be banded or broadcast on the soil, applied with a foliar treatment, or incorporated in a seed treatment Table 1 . o Soluble molybdenum sources, ammonium molybdate and
