The contents of Se, Fe, Co, Zn and Rb in several organs of Swiss mice were determined by instrumental neutron activation analysis (INAA) after injections with seleno-methionine (Se-Met) and glutathione (GSH). Se was accumulated in all examined organs and significant effects of the treatment with GSH on the distribution of Se were observed. An increase of Zn (or Se) content in blood after injection with Se-Met (or Zn2+ ions) was observed.
