ABSTRACT
A method for performing rapid semiquantitative screening of the distribution of Se species in the blood of cows fed with a diet enriched in selenized yeast was optimized. The method was based on direct injection of a blood sample onto a high resolution size exclusion chromatographic column and fractionation of the selenium species. Selenium was detected on-line by ICP-MS with a collision cell. The concentrations of selenized haemoglobin and free selenomethionine were estimated using the chromatogram. The method was applied to a study involving 15 control and 15 treated dairy cows at four different supplementation time points. The increase in the selenomethionine and selenized haemoglobin was a linear function of the total selenium concentration. A threshold value of 600 ng ml−1 of total Se was established beyond which selenomethionine could not be incorporated into the protein. No inorganic selenium was found to be present. The total selenium in cow blood correlated well with that in milk. The selenium supplementation did not change the protein distribution profiles for other essential elements (Cu, Fe, Mn, Zn).
