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...
