Elemental selenium is one of the dominant selenium species in soil, but the mechanism of its uptake by plants is still unclear. In this study, nanoparticles of elemental selenium (SeNPs) with different sizes were prepared, and their uptake and transformation in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) were analyzed in hydroponic experiments by HPLC-ICP-MS. We found that the SeNPs can be absorbed by wheat seedlings, and the process is energy independent. The addition of aquaporins inhibitor caused 92.5 and… 
Uptake, translocation and biotransformation of selenium nanoparticles in rice seedlings (Oryza sativa L.)
TLDR
The study revealed that SeNPs could be absorbed by rice plants; and aquaporin inhibitor was responsible for a 60.4% inhibition of SeNP influx, while metabolic inhibitor was ineffective, and Se was primarily accumulated in roots rather than in shoots, whereas an opposite trend was observed with selenate treatment.
Size-dependent transformation, uptake, and transportation of SeNPs in a wheat-soil system.
TLDR
The present study showed that the larger sized SeNPs in soil had significant advantages including higher grain Se concentration and Se utilization efficiency for wheat Se biofortification.
The fate of arsenic in rice plants (Oryza sativa L.): Influence of different forms of selenium.
TLDR
The results indicate that both SeNPs and selenite are effective in mitigating As toxicity in rice plants, although Selenite showed a stronger inhibiting effect on As translocation.
Selenite Uptake and Transformation in Rice Seedlings (Oryza sativa L.): Response to Phosphorus Nutrient Status
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the P nutrient status strongly affects the Se biofortification efficiency in rice seedlings by altering the Se subcellular distribution and speciation.
Comparative responses of cadmium accumulation and subcellular distribution in wheat and rice supplied with selenite or selenate
TLDR
The results proved that the inorganic Se could decline the Cd accumulation and translocation in the crop plants, although selenite was found more effective than selenate regarding such effects.
Insights into the accumulation and transformation of Ch-SeNPs by Raphanus sativus and Brassica juncea: Effect on essential elements uptake.
TLDR
Evaluating the biotransformation of chitosan-modified Se nanoparticles as well as their effect on the metabolism of essential metals (Fe, Cu, Zn and Mo) when applied to hydroponic cultivation of R. sativus and B. juncea showed that, regardless of plant species, Ch-SeNPs supplementation affected the absorption of Zn.
Green synthesis of Se nanoparticles and its effect on salt tolerance of barley plants
In this study, selenite ions were reduced to selenium nanoparticles using a leaf extract of barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) plants. Characterization of synthesized nanoparticles using Scanning Electron
Amelioration of AsV toxicity by concurrent application of ZnO-NPs and Se-NPs is associated with differential regulation of photosynthetic indexes, antioxidant pool and osmolytes content in soybean seedling.
TLDR
Data collectively suggest that selenium and zinc oxide nanoparticles may be a solution to ameliorate arsenic toxicity in agricultural soils and crop plants.
Nano-selenium foliar applications enhance the nutrient quality of pepper by activating the capsaicinoid synthetic pathway.
TLDR
It's found that nano-Se (20 mg/L) resulted in greater performance on plant heath, and activated capsaicinoid pathways through enhancing photosynthesis and raising soluble sugar levels.
Differential growth, nutrition, physiology, and gene expression in Melissa officinalis mediated by zinc oxide and elemental selenium nanoparticles
TLDR
The comparative physiological and molecular evidence on phytotoxicity and potential advantages of nSe, nZnO, and their bulk counterparts were served as a theoretical basis to be exploited in food, agricultural, and pharmaceutical industries.

Difference in Selenite Absorption Between High- and Low-Selenium Rice Cultivars and its Mechanism
Two rice cultivars, Xiushui 48 and S. Andrea, with significant difference in selenium (Se) concentrations in brown rice grains, were chosen to study the Se absorption and its mechanism in excised
Accumulation of red elemental selenium nanoparticles and their biological effects in Nicotiniatabacum
TLDR
The data clearly indicated that red nanoSe was taken up by tobacco callus cultures and rooted tobacco plantlets, and inhibited both callus growth and root regeneration totally in 265–530 μM concentrations.
Selenium speciation in wheat grain varies in the presence of nitrogen and sulphur fertilisers
TLDR
It is shown that it is possible to alter the content of individual Se species in wheat grains via biofortification combined with manipulation of N and S fertiliser regimes, which has potential significance in alleviating or combating both Se deficiency and Se toxicity effects in humans.
Selenium uptake response among selected wheat (Triticum aestivum) varieties and relationship with soil selenium fractions
TLDR
Grain Se concentration was significantly correlated with soil Se levels, soil pH, and orthophosphate-P content within a location, but grain Se concentrate was strongly influenced by geographical location in which different amounts of soil Se bioavailability occurred.
Selenium uptake, translocation and speciation in wheat supplied with selenate or selenite.
TLDR
Uptake, translocation and Se speciation in wheat supplied with selenate or selenite, or both, were investigated in hydroponic experiments andSelenite was rapidly converted to organic forms in roots, with limited translocation to shoots, and Selenite uptake is an active process likely mediated, at least partly, by phosphate transporters.
SELENIUM IN HIGHER PLANTS.
TLDR
Recent advances in the understanding of the plant's ability to metabolize Se into volatile Se forms (phytovolatilization) are discussed, along with the application of phytoremediation for the cleanup of Se contaminated environments.

TLDR
Common buckwheat was foliarly sprayed with a water solution containing 10 mg Se(VI) L(-1) at the beginning of flowering, and an instability of Se(IV) in seed extracts was observed as a possible consequence of binding to the matrix components.

TLDR
Biofortification of some crops with Se using agronomic and genetic approaches is being explored to cultivate them in the regions having Se-deficiency in foods.

Lower cytotoxicity of the biogenic Se NPs on MCF-7 cell line was confirmed and data obtained from reducing power assay revealed higher electron-donating activity of SeO2 compared to SeNPs, while the obtained results showed that, at the same concentration of 200μg/mL, Se Nps and SeO 2 represented scavenging activity.
