... Jae Lee Selenophosphate synthetase (SPS) was initially detected in bacteria and was shown to synthesize selenophosphate, the active selenium donor. However, mammals have two SPS paralogues, which are designated SPS1 and SPS2. Although it is known that SPS2 catalyses the synthesis of selenophosphate...

... selenium SePs (selenoproteins) are proteins containing the rare amino acid Sec (selenocysteine). Co-translational incorporation of Sec into proteins is mediated by cis - and trans -acting factors [ 1 ]. An in-frame UGA codon is recoded as a Sec codon if the respective mRNA contains a SECIS (Sec...

... targets, HOSCN targets cysteine residues with considerable selectivity. In the light of this reactivity, we hypothesized that Sec (selenocysteine) residues should also be rapidly oxidized by HOSCN, as selenium atoms are better nucleophiles than sulfur. Such oxidation might inactivate critical Sec...
