Higher animals are unable to synthesize Se-Met and only Se-Cys was detected in rats supplemented with Se as selenite .
For example, absorption of the selenite form of selenium is greater than 80% whereas that of selenium as selenomethionine or as selenate may be greater than 90%6,7.
Similarly growth and cell yields of the marine Chrysophyte Aureococcus anophagefferens are stimulated in the presence of Selenite .
Culture media optimization was carried out as a batch culture in 250ml conical flask contain 100ml Dewarln's medium supplemented with Iron as Fe-EDTA, Selenium as Sodium Selenite and Nickel as Nickel Sulphate with concentration ranging from 10 to 100[micro]g/l.
When we see the Selenites we definitely see them, but you can do an awful lot with shadows and sound, the rustle of beetles' wings and that kind of thing.
