Effects of methionine, an essential amino acid, on the embryotoxicity of selenium (Se) were examined using the rat embryo culture. Rat embryos at day 9.5 of gestation were cultured for 48 h in the presence of sodium selenite at 10 and 20 microM or sodium selenate at 30 and 100 microM with or without the addition of 1 mM DL-methionine. Selenite at 20 microM… CONTINUE READING
