The the metabolism of selenocompounds starts with Selenocysteine being metabolized by a CGS resulting in the release of Seleno-cystathionine. The resulting compound is metabolized by a CBL resulting in the release of selenohomocysteine. The resulting compound reacts with MET resulting in the release of a seleno-methionine. Selenomethionine can be either metabolized into Seleno-methionyl-tRNA or a Methyl-selenol. Methyl-selenol can also be the result of Methyl-selenic acid reacting with a thioredoxin reductase or Se-methyl-selenocysteine reacting through a CTH.
