Introduction Manganese (Mn) is a trace essential element, necessary for physiologic processes such as neuronal function (Prohaska 1987; Sloot and Gramsbergen 1994), protein and energy metabolism, bone growth (Aschner and Aschner 2005; Hurley 1981), and enzyme activation (Erikson and Aschner 2003). During fetal and neonatal development, there is an increased need for manganese due to […]
