Number of selenocysteine in a protein encoding 10 selenocysteines

Value 7.5 unitless Range: ±1 unitless
Organism Rat Rattus norvegicus
Reference Hill KE, Lloyd RS, Yang JG, Read R, Burk RF. The cDNA for rat selenoprotein P contains 10 TGA codons in the open reading frame. J Biol Chem. 1991 Jun 5266(16):pp. 10051PubMed ID2037562
Method Production of Polyclonal Antibodies to Selenoprotein P, sequencing and generation of peptides
Comments Ten TGA codons are present in the open reading frame of the cDNA, indicating that the primary structure of selenoprotein P contains 10 selenocysteines. This is 2-3 selenocysteines more than the above value based on direct analysis of purified protein (above value in selenium atoms/molecule)
