Abstract

In contrast to the widespread ability of bacteria, plants, and animals to incorporate selenium nonspecifically into proteins in the form of selenomethionine residues, the selenoamino acid selenocysteine occurs as a highly specific component of a few selenium-dependent enzymes. Selenocys...read more
