Entrez Gene Summary for SELK Gene

  • This gene encodes a selenoprotein, which contains a selenocysteine (Sec) residue at its active site. The selenocysteine is encoded by the UGA codon that normally signals translation termination. The 3' UTR of selenoprotein genes have a common stem-loop structure, the sec insertion sequence (SECIS), that is necessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than as a stop signal. This selenoprotein is localized to the endoplasmic reticulum and is highly expressed in the heart, where it may function as an antioxidant. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for SELK Gene

SELK (Selenoprotein K) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SELK include staphyloenterotoxemia. Among its related pathways are Integrated Breast Cancer Pathway and Selenium Metabolism and Selenoproteins.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SELK Gene

  • Required for Ca(2+) flux in immune cells and plays a role in T-cell proliferation and in T-cell and neutrophil migration. Involved in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) of soluble glycosylated proteins. Required for palmitoylation and cell surface expression of CD36 and involved in macrophage uptake of low-density lipoprotein and in foam cell formation. Plays a role in protection of cells from ER stress-induced apoptosis. Protects cells from oxidative stress when overexpressed in cardiomyocytes.

Function for SELK Gene

Molecular function for SELK Gene

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Function: Required for Ca(2+) flux in immune cells and plays a role in T-cell proliferation and in T-cell and neutrophil migration. Involved in endoplasmic reticulum-associated degradation (ERAD) of soluble glycosylated proteins. Required for palmitoylation and cell surface expression of CD36 and involved in macrophage uptake of low-density lipoprotein and in foam cell formation. Plays a role in protection of cells from ER stress-induced apoptosis. Protects cells from oxidative stress when overexpressed in cardiomyocytes.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Induction: By ER stress (at protein level). Displays a slow increase with a lag phase of 6 hours but exhibits a dramatic increase after incubation with ER stress agents for more than 12 hours with maximum induction at 24 hours. Also induced by accumulation of misfolded proteins in the ER.
