The authors outline what is currently known about the end result of vanadium transport--the target tissues; then summarize vanadium absorption mechanisms and the mechanisms of vanadium transport in blood plasma and blood cells. This review of vanadium transport summarizes what is known throughout the animal world, but of necessity relies heavily on data gathered for the ascidians, on which the most work has been done.
