Molecular biomarkers are mRNA transcripts that indicate the (nutrient) status of an organism or tissue. Molecular biomarker panels have the potential to readily and more accurately determine nutrient status than individual traditional biomarkers. To study the efficacy of molecular biomarker panels for predicting selenium (Se) status, we examined 30 biomarkers from rats fed graded levels of Se from deficient to eight times the minimum Se requirement, including four liver and four kidney… CONTINUE READING
