GeneCards Summary for EEFSEC Gene
EEFSEC (Eukaryotic Elongation Factor, Selenocysteine-TRNA Specific) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Selenium Metabolism and Selenoproteins and Viral mRNA Translation. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and tRNA binding. An important paralog of this gene is TUFM.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EEFSEC Gene
Translation factor necessary for the incorporation of selenocysteine into proteins. It probably replaces EF-Tu for the insertion of selenocysteine directed by the UGA codon. SelB binds GTP and GDP.
