The crucial role of the trace element selenium in livestock and human health, in particular in striated muscle function, has been well established but the underlying molecular mechanisms remain poorly understood. Over the last decade, identification of the full repertoire of selenium-containing proteins has opened the way towards a better characterization of these processes. Two selenoproteins have mainly been investigated in muscle, namely SelW and SelN. Here we address their involvement in… CONTINUE READING
