Selenium for the mitigation of toxicity induced by lead in chicken testes through regulating mRNA expressions of HSPs and selenoproteins.

Abstract

Lead (Pb) is a toxic element and environmental pollutant. Pb toxicity and antagonistic effect of selenium (Se) on Pb have been deeply studied in mammals. The testis is one of the target organs of Pb in birds. The aim of this study was to investigate the mitigating effect of Se on Pb toxicity in chicken testes by determining messenger RNA (mRNA) expressions… (More)
