Selenocysteine lyase, a novel enzyme that specifically acts on selenocysteine. Mammalian distribution and purification and properties of pig liver enzyme.
We have found a novel enzyme that exclusively decomposes L-selenocysteine into L-alanine and H2Se in various mammalian tissues, and have named it selenocysteine lyase. The enzyme from pig liver hasExpand

Crystal structure of L-2-haloacid dehalogenase from Pseudomonas sp. YL. An alpha/beta hydrolase structure that is different from the alpha/beta hydrolase fold.
L-2-Haloacid dehalogenase catalyzes the hydrolytic dehalogenation of L-2-haloalkanoic acids to yield the corresponding D-2-hydroxyalkanoic acids. The crystal structure of the homodimeric enzyme fromExpand
