Since the early 1980s, the biochemical behavior of vanadium has been investigated extensively such as its potent inhibitory role for Na+/K+-ATPase and its participation in insulin-mimicking but also because of the more recent findings on the enzymes and compounds containing vanadium. In addition, knowledge of the medicinal applications of vanadium such as the biochemical roles of its compounds in bone development,  Read more...
