Volatile selenium in higher plants the production of dimethyl selenide in cabbage leaves by enzymatic cleavage of Se-methyl selenomethionine selenonium salt

Abstract

The volatile selenium compound produced by cabbage (Brassica oleracea var. Capitata) when cultured on media containing either selenite or selenate is dimethyl selenide, (CH3)2 Se. The dimethyl selenide arises from enzymatic cleavage of a Se-methyl selenomethionine selenonium compound. re]19730424
