|Other Names||Selenoprotein K, SelK, SELK|
|Target/Specificity||The synthetic peptide sequence used to generate the antibody AP13595c was selected from the Center region of SELK. A 10 to 100 fold molar excess to antibody is recommended. Precise conditions should be optimized for a particular assay.|
|Format||Synthetic peptide was lyophilized with 100% acetonitrile and is supplied as a powder. Reconstitute with 0.1 ml DI water for a final concentration of 1 mg/ml.|
|Storage||Maintain refrigerated at 2-8°C for up to 6 months. For long term storage store at -20°C.|
|Precautions||This product is for research use only. Not for use in diagnostic or therapeutic procedures.|
|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.|
|Cellular Location||Endoplasmic reticulum membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Cell membrane; Single-pass membrane protein. Note=Probably mainly localized in the ER.|
|Tissue Location||Highly expressed in heart.|

This gene encodes a selenoprotein, which contains aselenocysteine (Sec) residue at its active site. The selenocysteineis encoded by the UGA codon that normally signals translationtermination. The 3' UTR of selenoprotein genes have a commonstem-loop structure, the sec insertion sequence (SECIS), that isnecessary for the recognition of UGA as a Sec codon rather than asa stop signal. This selenoprotein is localized to the endoplasmicreticulum and is highly expressed in the heart, where it mayfunction as an antioxidant.
