Sorry, no etymologies found.
Furthermore, TH affected the mRNA levels for several enzymes involved in selenoprotein biosynthesis as well as serum selenoprotein P concentrations and the expression of other antioxidative selenoproteins.
This prompted us to test the reciprocal effect, i.e., if TH status would also regulate selenoprotein expression and selenium levels.
"Our in vitro and in vivo findings consistently demonstrate that sodium selenite supplementation induces an increase in the activity of GPx-1, a selenoprotein prominent in antioxidant defense and cardiovascular protection," wrote the researchers.
