PFAM accession number:PF04593
Interpro abstract (IPR007672):

SelP is the only known eukaryotic selenoprotein that contains multiple selenocysteine (Sec) residues, and accounts for more than 50% of the selenium content of rat and human plasma [ (PUBMED:10775431) ]. It is thought to be glycosylated [ (PUBMED:11168591) ]. SelP may have antioxidant properties. It can attach to epithelial cells, and may protect vascular endothelial cells against peroxynitrite toxicity [ (PUBMED:10775431) ]. The high selenium content of SelP suggests that it may be involved in selenium intercellular transport or storage [ (PUBMED:11168591) ]. The promoter structure of bovine SelP suggests that it may be involved in countering heavy metal intoxication, and may also have a developmental function [ (PUBMED:9358058) ]. The N-terminal region always contains one Sec residue, and this is separated from the C-terminal region (9-16 sec residues) by a histidine-rich sequence [ (PUBMED:11168591) ]. The large number of Sec residues in the C-terminal portion of SelP suggests that it may be involved in selenium transport or storage. However, it is also possible that this region has a redox function [ (PUBMED:11168591) ].
