E-GEOD-46038 - The effects of dietary selenium on selenocysteine incorporation and selenoprotein expression
Released on 17 September 2013, last updated on 3 October 2013
The goal of this study was to determine the effects of dietary selenium levels on translational control of selenoprotein synthesis in mouse liver. Wild type mice and mice expressing a mutant Sec-tRNA gene (TrspA37G) were fed diets supplemented with 0, 0.1, or 2 ppm selenium for 6 weeks. Livers were harvested and ribosome and mRNA profiles were generated by deep-sequencing using the Illumina HiSeq 2000.
