Life is like a box of enzymes

I am working with an enzynme that is required for humans to live. It is a Molybdenum (Mo) enzyme and without it humans cannot sustain life for more than a year. A genetic disease causes the lack of the production and it is rare, so the market for a cure is very low. Hopefully, my work can help lead to new discoveries and eventually there will be a way to if not cure, then prevent future occurences.
