Disease relevance of selC

  • GrdB could be heterologously produced in Escherichia coli with coexpression of selB and selC from E. acidaminophilum for selenocysteine insertion [1].
  • The selC locus was also noted to harbour homologues of Salmonella enterica regulator HilA and of invasin from Yersinia spp., yet previous publications suggested that these loci may be silent [2].
