What is the isotopic nature of fuel used in nuclear reactors?

In PWR and BWR reactors, the new fuel is 4 to 5 percent U-235, the rest U-238. Some small research type reactors use a higher U-235 content, perhaps 20 percent. There is also mixed oxide fuel (MOX) which contains plutonium as well as uranium, this is produced in the UK and France and used in some countries, Japan for instance, but not so far in the US. I believe a MOX plant is to be built in the US, this will presumably use Pu from military sources as no chemical separation of spent fuel is carried out in the US as a commercial operation.
