Metabolism of Tracer 75Se Selenium From Inorganic and Organic Selenocompounds Into Selenoproteins in Rats, and the Missing 75Se Metabolites

We now know much about selenium (Se) incorporation into selenoproteins, and there is considerable interest in the optimum form of Se for supplementation and prevention of cancer. To study the flux of 75Se into selenoprotein, rats were fed 0 to 5 μg Se/g diet as selenite for 50–80 d and injected iv w...
