VU investigators confirm bromine’s critical role in tissue development
Twenty-seven chemical elements are considered to be essential for human life.
Now there is a 28th — bromine.
In a paper published Thursday, June 5, in the journal Cell, Vanderbilt University researchers establish for the first time that bromine, among the 92 naturally occurring chemical elements in the universe, is the 28thelement essential for tissue development in all animals, from primitive sea creatures to humans.
“Without bromine, there are no animals. That’s the discovery,” said Billy Hudson, Ph.D., the paper’s senior author and Elliott V. Newman Professor of Medicine.
