The human body manages and regulates the levels of important trace elements that will be circulated via blood and stored in cells. These elements are supplied to the human body from the diet. If blood levels are reduced or depleted, they are incorporated into blood, transported into cells if cellular levels are not sufficient, or excreted from the body if the levels in blood and cell are overloaded. When such function fails in the human body, abnormal levels of these trace metals will develop. The most common imbalance in trace elements is depressed zinc. Zinc is the second most abundant element in the human body after iron and is the only metal element seen in all classes of enzymes. Human body has 2-4 grams of zinc distributed throughout. Most of the zinc is present in brain, muscle, bones, kidney and liver. Prostate and eye have highest concentrations of zinc. Zinc plays role in many cellular processes. More than 200 enzymes require zinc for their catalytic activity. It also plays a role in immunity, healing of wounds, protein and DNA synthesis and cell division. Zinc is required for proper sense of taste and smell, supports normal growth and development during pregnancy, childhood, and adolescence.
The Biochemistry & Physiology: Open Access is an academic journal – hosted by OMICS International – a pioneer in open access publishing–and is listed among the top 10 zinc biological activity related journals. Each year research scientists have noticed a rise in the number of congresses being held in this field. The 'Biochemistry & Physiology: Open Access' journal provides a unique platform to researchers and scientist to explore the advanced and latest research developments in the field of physiology and biochemistry, thus bridging the gap between researchers and young scientists..
|OMICS International hosts over 700 leading-edge peer reviewed Open Access Journals and organize over 3000 International Conferences annually all over the world. OMICS International journals have over 3 million readers and the fame and success of the same can be attributed to the strong editorial board which contains over 50000 eminent personalities that ensure a rapid, quality and quick review process. OMICS International signed an agreement with more than 1000 International Societies to make healthcare information Open Access.|
