Influence of Sodium Selenite on the mRNA Expression of the Mammalian Selenocysteine-Containing Protein Genes in Testicle and Prostate Cancer Cells
The sodium selenite concentration that reduces the viability of Du-145 human prostate adenocarcinoma cells and F-9 mouse testicular teratocarcinoma cells was determined. We investigated the effect of sodium selenite on the mRNA expression level of the genes encoding mammalian selenocysteine-containing glutathione peroxidases and thioredoxin reductases (key antioxidant enzymes involved in the regulation of intracellular thiol redox balance), endoplasmic reticulum selenoproteins, and selenoproteins located in the testes and prostate.
