Aluminum (Al) poisoning is linked to the development of cardiovascular diseases, and dietary supplementation with selenium-rich-yeast (SeY) has been shown to prevent inflammatory conditions. We evaluated the preventive effect of SeY on Al-induced cardiotoxicity, and the possible underlying mechanisms. Mice were treated with SeY (0.1 mg/kg) and/or Al (10 mg/kg) by oral gavage for 4 weeks. Histopathological damage was observed in the heart of Al-treated mice, in addition to the transcriptional up/downregulation of nuclear xenobiotic receptors (NXRs), inflammatory cytokines and 15 CYP450s genes. SeY significantly inhibited these Al-induced histopathological and molecular changes, and restored these indicators to the control levels. These results suggest that SeY exerts a cardio-protective effect against Al-induced toxicity through the NXR system, inflammatory cytokines, and CYP450s genes.
