ENZYME entry: EC 2.9.1.1

Accepted Name
L-seryl-tRNA(Sec) selenium transferase
Alternative Name(s)
cysteinyl-tRNA(Sec)-selenium transferase
cysteinyl-tRNA(Sel)-selenium transferase
L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sec) synthase
L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sel) synthase
selenocysteine synthase
Reaction catalysed
H(+) + L-seryl-tRNA(Sec) + selenophosphate <=> L-selenocysteinyl-tRNA(Sec) + phosphate
Comment(s)
  • Recognizes specifically tRNA(Sec)-species.
  • Binding of tRNA(Sec) also occurs in the absence of the seryl group.
  • 2-Aminoacryloyl-tRNA, bound to the enzyme as an imine with the pyridoxal phosphate, is an intermediate in the reaction.
  • Since the selenium atom replaces oxygen in serine, the product may also be referred to as L-selenoseryl-tRNA(Sel).
  • The abbreviation Sel has also been used for selenocysteine but Sec is preferred.
