Metal metabolism consists of delivering the correct metal ion to act where it is needed. Uptake, transport, buffering, storage and excretion must ensure that physiologically necessary metals are made available, though not in excess, and that deleterious metals are excluded or rendered harmless. Enzymatic insertion is also sometimes necessary for adequate selectivity of binding of a metal at its active site.
