The four genes required for selenocysteine incorporation were isolated from the gram-positive, amino acid-fermenting anaerobe Eubacterium acidaminophilum, which expresses various selenoproteins of different functions. The sel genes were located in an unique organization on a continuous fragment of genomic DNA in the order selD1 (selenophosphate synthetase 1), selA (selenocysteine synthase), selB (selenocysteine-specific elongation factor), and selC (selenocysteine-specific tRNA). A second gene… CONTINUE READING
