Roles of selenium and sulfur-containing amino acids in protection against oxygen toxicity.

Abstract

Tolerance and adaptation to hyperoxia have been correlated with increases in antioxidant enzymes. This study evaluated whether selenium deficiency would prevent an increase in glutathione peroxidase (GSHPX), a selenium-containing enzyme, during oxygen exposure, and, thus, inhibit adaptation. Because the Torula yeast-based diet, which was used to produce… (More)
