Effect of Se status on relative expression of selenoprotein transcripts in chick liver (A), gizzard (B) and pancreas (C). Liver and gizzard RNA was from chicks supplemented with 0, 0.3, or 1.0 μg Se/g diet. Pancreas RNA was from chicks supplemented with 0, 0.025, 0.3, or 1.0 μg Se/g diet. Relative transcript expression for each gene was determined by qPCR and expressed relative to the level in Se-adequate (0.3 μg Se/g diet) Bars show the mean±SEM (n = 4). Asterisks indicated significant effects of dietary treatment (P<0.05).
