The tRNA[Ser]Sec molecule mediates the synthesis of selenoproteins by incorporating selenocysteine into specific UGA codons upon translation of mRNAs that encode selenocysteine-containing proteins. The mouse gene encoding tRNA[Ser]Sec (Trsp) was isolated from a genomic library and sequenced. The mouse sequence is colinear with its tRNA product, and contains… CONTINUE READING
