Using various chromatographic techniques (size exclusion, anion exchange, and cation exchange) combined with several detectors (neutron activation analysis and atomic fluorescence spectrometry), an attempt was made to characterize selenium compounds in some edible, selenium-accumulating mushrooms (Albatrellus pes-caprae and Boletus edulis). The mushrooms contained mostly low-molecular-weight (6 kDa) selenium compounds. After proteolysis, only a small fraction of the extractable selenium could be identified as selenite (3.0-9.2%, Albatrellus pes-caprae), selenocystine (minor, Albatrellus pes-caprae; 7.5%, Boletus edulis), or selenomethionine (1.0%, Boletus edulis), leaving the form of the bulk still to be elucidated.
