ENZYME entry: EC 4.4.1.16

Accepted Name
selenocysteine lyase
Alternative Name(s)
selenocysteine beta-lyase
selenocysteine reductase
Reaction catalysed
AH2 + L-selenocysteine = A + H(+) + hydrogenselenide + L-alanine
Comment(s)
  • Dithiothreitol or 2-sulfanylethan-1-ol (2-mercaptoethanol) can act as the reducing agent in the reaction.
  • The enzyme from animals does not act on cysteine, serine or chloroalanine, while the enzyme from bacteria shows activity with cysteine (cf. EC 2.8.1.7).
