Comparison of the redox chemistry of sulfur- and selenium-containing analogs of uracil

Free Radical Biology & Medicine

Abstract

Selenium is present in proteins in the form of selenocysteine, where this amino acid serves catalytic oxidoreductase functions. The use of selenocysteine in nature is strongly associated with redox catalysis. However, selenium is also found in a 2-selenouridine moiety at the wobble posi...read more
