Interpretation of effects connected with the presence of zinc in the soil was supported by the following data analyses: percentage of factors of the observed variations r|2, Pearson correlation coefficients (p = 0.01) between the zinc dose and the investigated parameters, cluster analysis (CA) by Ward's method with Euclidean distance in studies of the microorganism populations and principal component analysis (PCA) illustrating the activity of oxidoreductases and community of microorganisms.
Like iron, copper, zinc, manganese, and cobalt, molybdenum (Mo) can be utilized as a stably bound, variably coordinated cofactor in proteins, in mammals, Mo is found in three different enzymes: aldehyde oxidoreductase (AOR), sulfite oxidase (SOX), and xanthine oxidoreductase (XOR).
