The concentrations of glycolytic and citric acid cycle intermediates were measured in the livers and kidneys from a selenium group of rats receiving 4 ppm Se in their drinking water. Compared to the concentrations of intermediates in the livers and kidneys from a control group of rats yoke-fed to the selenium rats, no metabolic changes were observed. It was concluded that growth depression and changes in eating and drinking behavior caused by selenium were not due to enzyme inhibition within glycolysis or the citric acid cycle.
