Metabolic studies in rats of (75-Se)selenomethionine and of 75-Se incorporated in vivo into rabbit kidney.

1. [75-Se]selenomethionine was administered to four rabbits and after 4 d their kidneys were removed and homogenized. The long-term fate in rats of an oral dose of this kidney homogenate (RK-75-Se) was compared with that of an oral dose of ]75-Se]selenomethionine mixed with unlabelled rabbit kidney homogenate. 2. Urinary adn faecal radioactivities were… CONTINUE READING
