The purpose of this study was to determine glutathione peroxidase (GSHPx) activity in the liver of red deer in relation to selenium concentrations in the liver, as well as to evaluate changes in GSHPx activity according to sex, body weight and season of the year. Total selenium concentration in the liver of red deer averaged 0.095 ± 0.018 μg/g of wet weight. GSHPx activity in the liver of red deer ranged widely from 4.4 to 45.8 U/g of protein. Females were characterized by higher GSHPx activity… CONTINUE READING
