Copper is a trace element essential for life (humans, plants, animals, and micro-organisms). The human body normally contains copper at a concentration of about 1.4 to 2.1 mg per kg. Copper is found in the liver, muscles and bones. Copper is carried in the bloodstream by means of a protein called ceruleoplasmin71. After copper is absorbed from the intestine, it is transported to the liver, bound to albumin. The metabolism and excretion of copper is controlled by the delivery of ceruleoplasmin to the liver, and the copper is excreted in the bile. At the cellular level, copper is present in a number of enzymes and proteins, including cytochrome c oxidase and certain superoxide dismutases (SOD). Copper is used for the biological transport of electrons, e.g. the “copper blue” proteins, azurine and plastocyanine. The name “copper blue” comes from their intense blue color due to an absorption band (around 600 nm) by ligand / metal charge transfer (LMCT). Many mollusks and some arthropods, such as horseshoe crab, use a copper-based pigment, hemocyanin, for oxygen transport, rather than hemoglobin, which has an iron nucleus, and their blood is therefore blue, and not red, when it is oxygenated72.
Vitamin B9, another name for folic acid (folate, folacin or vitamin M, pteroyl-L-glutamic acid, pteroyl-L-glutamate and pteroylmonoglutamic acid), is a water soluble vitamin.
Folic acid is the metabolic precursor of a coenzyme, tetrahydrofolate (FH4 or THF4), involved in particular in the synthesis of nucleic bases, purines and pyrimidines, constituting the nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) of the genetic material. THF is also involved in the synthesis of amino acids such as methionine, histidine and serine.
Magnesium is involved in more than 400 biochemical reactions. It is particularly involved in the osmotic transport of glucose, the insulin transport of glucose and in all stages of energy production. A major mechanism of biochemical activation, consisting of adding a phosphate group to a protein, magnesium is a cofactor of phosphorylation. It is also an actor in homeostasis, a mechanism allowing the conservation of an internal balance (cell, heart rate, urination, digestion, body temperature, etc.) and an essential cofactor in the polymerization of nucleic acids.
Manganese is a trace element (necessary for humans to survive), manganese deficiency (less than 2 to 3 mg / day for an average adult), leads – depending on the animal model – to reproductive disorders for both sexes, bone malformations, depigmentations, ataxia and alteration of the central nervous system.
Inorganic phosphorus in the form of the phosphate PO3−4 is required for all known forms of life. Phosphorus plays a major role in the structural framework of DNA and RNA. Living cells use phosphate to transport cellular energy with adenosine triphosphate (ATP), necessary for every cellular process that uses energy. ATP is also important for phosphorylation, a key regulatory event in cells. Phospholipids are the main structural components of all cellular membranes. Calcium phosphate salts assist in stiffening bones. Biochemists commonly use the abbreviation “Pi” to refer to inorganic phosphate.
