"About half of the selenium in whole blood is found in the plasma, of which selenoprotein P (SEPP1) usually constitutes more than 60% and glutathione peroxidase constitutes 25%," U. Alehagen and colleagues write. "SEPP1 contains up to 10 selenocysteine residues and is the means of transporting selenium around the body to tissues that need it. It has an antioxidative role in the blood and, among other biological effects, it is believed to be active in endothelial protection."
