Summation

Inorganic (selenite, SeO3(2-); and selenate, SeO4(2-)) and organic (selenocysteine, Sec; and selenomethionine, SeMet) forms of selenium can introduced in the diet where they are transformed into the intermediate selenide (Se(2-)) through the trans-selenation pathway, selenocysteine lyase (SCLY), and cystathionine gamma-lyase (CTH).
