1beta-methylseleno-N-acetyl-D-galactosamine (MeSebGalNac) aka selenosugar B is oxidatively cleaved to methylseleninic acid (MeSeO2H) and 2-acetamidoglucal by an unknown mechanism. The actual enzyme or enzymes involved have yet to be identified. This reaction is inferred from the event in rat (Suzuki et al. 2006).
