Simon Avery and Sara Holland from the University of Nottingham explain the current thinking on how chromium interferes in sulfur metabolism. The minireview incorporates the interactions of chromium with cellular sulfur ligands, chromate uptake by sulfate transporteres as well as the implications of these findings in humans.
This is a model Metallomics paper and you can read it for free until the 13th September.
Avery and Holland’s review is due to be published in our themed issue on Metal Toxicity later in the year. Below are some of the other papers due for inclusion in the Metal Toxicity issue that are already available online:
