ENZYME entry: EC 2.9.1.2

Accepted Name
O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA(Sec):L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA synthase.
Alternative Name(s)
O-phosphoseryl-tRNA(Sec) selenium transferase.
O-phosphoseryl-tRNA:selenocysteinyl-tRNA synthase.
SepSecS.
Reaction catalysed
O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA(Sec) + selenophosphate + H(2)O <=> L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sec) + 2 phosphate
Cofactor(s)
Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate.
Comment(s)
  • In archaea and eukarya selenocysteine formation is achieved by a two- step process: EC 2.7.1.164 phosphorylates the endogenous L-seryl- tRNA(Sec) to O-phospho-L-seryl-tRNA(Sec), and then this misacylated amino acid-tRNA species is converted to L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sec) by Sep-tRNA:Sec-tRNA synthase.
  • Formerly EC 2.9.1.n1.
