Selenium is an essential trace element
in humans, the majority of it
occurring in selenoproteins. These
proteins have several known physiologic
functions; they are important
antioxidants, maintain normal thyroid
function, and are thought to
play a role in inhibiting tumor
growth. There has been considerable
interest in studying selenoproteins
in serum because the selenium
concentrations reported for many
populations are less than those required
for optimum activity of selenoenzymes.
This may have both
long- and short-term consequences
for human health.
