• mitigating cellular oxidati
  • The biological efficacy and anti-carcinogenic benefits of organic Se are believed to come about through the expression of selenoamino acids containing selenoproteins and selenoenzymes, which are involved in mitigating cellular oxidative stress by inactivating cellular oxidants such as reactive oxygen species (ROS) [2,12-.

  • pathway
  • The objectives of the study are to determine whether glutamate induced cell death is mediated through mitochondrial initiated cell death pathway and activation of autophagy, and whether overexpression of selenoprotein H can protect cells from glutamate toxicity by preserving mitochondrial morphology and suppressing autophagy.

  • Among
  • Among eukaryotes, selenoproteins appear to be common in animals, but rare or absent in other phyla -one has been identified in the green alga Chlamydomonas, but almost none in other plants or in fungi. (wikipedia.org)
  • Among bacteria and archaea, selenoproteins are only present in some lineages, while they are completely absent in many other phylogenetic groups. (wikipedia.org)
  • muscle
  • In ongoing studies, we are analyzing the roles of calcium mobilization in mediating many kinds of intercellular signaling events, including those required for neuronal patterning, muscle differentiation, and left-right patterning. (utah.edu)
