As selenium in the form of “Selenoprotein W (SelW)” is essential for the maintenance of normal liver function, the expression of SelW liver depends on the level of selenium supplied with the diet. Whereas this is well known to be the case in mammals, relatively little is known about the effect of dietary Se on the expression SelW in the livers of avian species. To investigate the effects of dietary Se levels on the SelW mRNA expression in the liver of bird, 1-day-old male chickens were fed… CONTINUE READING
