GSSebGalNac is reduced and methylated to MeSebGalNac

In rat cytosol, 1beta-glutathionylseleno-N-acetyl-D-galactosamine (GSSebGalNac) aka selenosugar A is converted into 1beta-methylseleno-N-acetyl-D-galactosamine (MeSebGalNac) aka selenosugar B by an unknown mechanism. The actual enzyme or enzymes involved have yet to be identified (Kobayashi et al. 2002).
