Research on Association Between Selenium Deficiencies and Change of Thyroid Function

2018-03-05 22:25:10 | BioPortfolio


As one of the essential micronutrients, selenium has important biological functions. However, an effective and convenient method for evaluation of selenium nutritional status has not yet been established. Previous literature has disclosed effect of selenium deficiency on inactivating glutathion peroxidase and deiodinase, which may cause decreased conversion from thyroxine ( T4) to triiodothyronine (T3). A case-control study is designed to demonstrate the association between selenium deficiency and abnormally elevated T4 or T4/T3, which may provide more clues for establishing effective selenium assesment methods.

Development and application of a HPLC-ICP-MS method to determine selenium speciation in muscle of pigs treated with different selenium supplements.

Dietary selenium deficiency is recognized as a global problem. Pork is the most widely consumed meat throughout the world and an important source of selenium for humans. In this study, a reliable appr...

Low triiodothyronine syndrome and serum selenium status in the course of acute myocardial infarction.

Both glutathione peroxidase and deiodinases are selenoproteins requiring selenium. Oxidative stress accompanying acute myocardial infarction (MI) may lead to activation of peroxidase and relative sele...

Evaluation of urinary selenium as a biomarker of human occupational exposure to elemental and inorganic selenium.

Selenium (Se) is an essential trace element, which however, exhibits a narrow safe range of intake. Selenium also occurs at several workplaces, which results in an inhalative selenium exposure of the ...

Maternal selenium deficiency during pregnancy in mice increases thyroid hormone concentrations, alters placental function and reduces fetal growth.

Inappropriate intake of key micronutrients in pregnancy is known to alter maternal endocrine status, impair placental development and induce fetal growth restriction. Selenium is an essential micronut...

Effects of selenium deficiency and low protein intake on the apoptosis through a mitochondria-dependent pathway.

Selenium(Se)is an important trace element for human health. Studies have shown that selenium deficiency and low protein(Pr) intake are the primary risk factors for Keshan disease.The relationship betw...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A selenium compound used as a source of SELENIUM, especially for patients that develop selenium deficiency following prolonged PARENTERAL NUTRITION.
