MeSebGalNac is oxidatively cleaved to MeSeO2H and 2-acetamidoglucal

In rat cytosol, 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 (Suzuki et al. 2006).
