Effects of cyanide on selenium metabolism in rats.
Glutathione peroxidase activity and selenium concentrations were significantly reduced by cyanide in all tissues except testes, and the distribution of 75Se in cytosolic proteins in liver, kidney, muscle or testes was unchanged.
Selenium in the anterior pituitary of the rat after a single injection of75Se sodium selenite
From the present study, it can be concluded that selenium in the form of selenite accumulates in the anterior pituitary after a single intraperitoneal injection; selenITE is excreted from the gland in a biphasic manner; practically all Selenium is Excreted within 60 d; and pituitaries from normal rats contain .48 μg selenum/g wet wt.
Phospholipid Hydroperoxide Glutathione Peroxidase Is The Major Selenoperoxidase In Nuclei and Mitochondria Of Rat Testis
This paper reports the identification of the selenoenzyme Phospholipid Hydroperoxide Glutathione Peroxidase (PHGPX) in rat testis. PHGPX specific activity in the testis was the highest so far
Daniel Medina in Vivo and in Vitro Cells Distribution of Selenoproteins in Mouse Mammary Epithelial
Resolution of selenium-containing proteins synthesized by mouse mam mary gland cells was achieved using the technique of two-dimensional gel electrophoresis. Radioactive selenium as i I "Si-th was
Expression of Mitochondrial Capsule Selenoprotein mRNA Increases with Aging, but Decreases by Selenium Deficiency in the Mouse Testis
Novel evidence is provided that MCS mRNA level in testes increases with aging, but remarkably decreases due to Se deficiency.


Interactions between cadmium, selenium and glutathione peroxidase in rat testis.
Susceptibility of the testes to Cd did not correlate with the presence of this peak, however, since 4-week-old rats were occassionally damaged by CdCl2, which did not inhibit GSH-Px activity.
Selenium proteins in ovine tissues: III. Distribution of selenium and glutathione peroxidases in tissue cytosols.
Selenium status of the animal had only a minor effect on the selenium-75 distribution in the cytosol, but had a marked effect in the absolute amount of the label taken up by tissues.
Selective incorporation of selenium-75 into a polypeptide of the rat sperm tail (1).

It is suggested that the labeled moiety is a selenopolypeptide whose function is critical for normal assembly of the sperm tail.
Reaction of selenium with immunoglobulin molecules.
Molecular heterogeneity of cytosolic forms of estrogen receptors from human breast tumors.
The findings with diethylaminoethyl cellulose chromatography suggest that the molecular composition of the 8S species of estrogen receptors from hormonally responsive tumors is different from that of certain uresponsive neoplasms.
