Selenophosphate-synthetase in the male accessory glands of an insect without selenoproteins

Fuessl, Marion ; Reinders, Jörg ; Oefner, Peter J. ; Heinze, Jürgen ; Schrempf, Alexandra


Selenoproteins (containing the 21st proteinogenic amino acid selenocysteine) play important roles throughout all domains of life. Surprisingly, a number of taxa have small selenoproteomes, and Hymenopteran insects appear to have fully lost selenoproteins. Nevertheless, their genomes contain genes for several proteins of the selenocysteine insertion machinery, including selenophosphate synthetase ...
