Prolonged Dietary Selenium Deficiency or Excess Does Not Globally Affect Selenoprotein Gene Expression and/or Protein Production in Various Tissues of Pigs

submitted by: leilab
We previously determined the effects of dietary selenium (Se) de?ciency or excess on mRNA abundance of 12 selenoprotein genes in pig tissues. In this study, we determined the effect of dietary Se on mRNA levels of the remaining porcine selenoprotein genes along with protein production of 4 selenoproteins (Gpx1, Sepp1, Selh, and Sels) and body glucose homeostasis. Weanling male pigs (n = 24) were fed a Se-de?cient (,0.02 mg Se/kg), basal diet supplemented with 0, 0.3, or 3.0 mg Se/kg as...

An Introduction to Biomedical Nomenclature: Part III, QTL and Marker Nomenclature

submitted by: RGD.Videos
Biomedical nomenclature is a valuable and ever-expanding tool that researchers can use in order to more easily learn about, refer to or retrieve any particular parts of the genome using the literature or through the use of curated data and a variety of tools, such as the ones available in RGD. This video showcases both QTL and marker nomenclature. For a copy of RGNC’s complete set of rules on nomenclature, visit: Or contact us at:...
