Vectors for Western clawed frog selenof

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol selenof
  • Species Western clawed frog (Xenopus tropicalis)

  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    The protein encoded by this gene belongs to the SEP15/selenoprotein M family. The exact function of this protein is not known; however, it has been found to associate with UDP-glucose:glycoprotein glucosyltransferase (UGTR), an endoplasmic reticulum(ER)-resident protein, which is involved in the quality control of protein folding. The association with UGTR retains this protein in the ER, where it may play a role in protein folding. This protein is a selenoprotein, containing the rare amino acid selenocysteine (Sec). Sec is encoded by the UGA codon, which normally signals translation termination. The 3\' UTRs of selenoprotein mRNAs contain a conserved stem-loop structure, designated the Sec insertion sequence (SECIS) element, that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon, rather than as a stop signal. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2016]
