Aliases for SEPHS1 Gene
External Ids for SEPHS1 Gene
This gene encodes an enzyme that synthesizes selenophosphate from selenide and ATP. Selenophosphate is the selenium donor used to synthesize selenocysteine, which is co-translationally incorporated into selenoproteins at in-frame UGA codons. [provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
