Metals are electropositive chemical elements, and as such have a propensity to form cations, which they are found as – often bound in metalloproteins – in living systems. Many metals play important roles in living systems; for instance sodium and potassium, which are important for maintaining osmotic equilibrium, as well as calcium, magnesium, iron and copper.
