Molybdenum is a metallic element essential to the great majority of organisms, from archaea and bacteria to higher plants and mammals, being found in the active site of enzymes that catalyze (mostly) oxidation–reduction reactions that involve the transfer of an oxygen or sulfur or hydrogen atom to/from a carbon, nitrogen, or sulfur atom of key metabolites. ... This chapter provides an overview of the three families of mononuclearmolybdenum
containing enzymes, focusing on the structural (“Enzymatic Machineries” sections) and mechanistic (“Mechanistic
Strategies” sections) aspects of the best-characterized members.
